7 Affordable and Clean Energy

SDG 7 - Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all


  • A 2016-2017 report examines how Canada could act to limit global warming while remaining economically competitive. This report, signed by 71 university researchers from all 10 provinces, suggests that decreased demand for fossil fuels over the coming decades could significantly reduce inward investment in the oil and gas sector. As a result, this would make the industry riskier and less attractive. Given Canada's vast endowment of renewable energy resources, our country can seize the global low-carbon energy transition as an opportunity to build a major new economic engine.
