QUEST Canada and Pollution Probe Launch a Bi-Monthly Community of Practice
QUEST Canada and Pollution Probe invite you to participate in a national Community of Practice (CoP), with bi-monthly meetings, as part of the Low Carbon Energy Innovation project.
QUEST Canada and Pollution Probe Launch the Low Carbon Energy Innovation Project
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The federal target of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 has shifted the conversation, leaving the future of Canada’s energy sector at a crossroad. The need for innovation has grown, with a clear and ambitious objective materializing. Despite this, the current pace at which change is occuring is far from sufficient. Innovation in the energy sector needs to generate transformational, large-scale change in a short period of time. While we have much of the technology we need, according to the IEA’s net-zero scenario, this innovation has to be deployed faster than it has been in the past. The challenge is to develop an adequate set of policies, programs and regulatory tools that will enable the deployment and scaling up of available technologies, in order to meet our net-zero target.
This three-year initiative will complete the following actions:
1 - Launch a Low Carbon Innovation Community of Practice (COP)
2 - Combine cutting-edge research with on-the-ground qualitative analysis
3 - Create a National Low Carbon Innovation Scorecard
4 - Culminate with a National Energy Innovation Symposium
PROJECT PARTNERS & SUPPORTERS
This project is made possible by support from the Suncor Energy Foundation (SEF).
Empowering Canadian Communities
QUEST Canada develops and implements projects with the aim to nurture strategic partnerships, facilitate connections, empower community champions, and influence decisions makers, supporting communities across Canada on their pathway to net-zero. Find out more about our projects:
