Canada is the 6th largest energy producer in the world, with oil and gas leading its production. Renewable, nuclear and coal production are however also significant, especially for a country of 38 million. Oil production, mostly located in the land-locked province of Alberta, has been growing faster than pipeline capacity, depressing local oil prices. US shale production also depressed oil and gas prices. Various types of opposition create additional difficulties for the industry. This webinar covers the state of the energy situation in Canada, with a focus on the difficulties to reconcile long-term GHG reduction targets with the Canadian energy production and consumption reality. The covid-19 crisis adds complexity and uncertainty to the situation. There are however many positive energy paths that could emerge from these difficult times, in which Canada could contribute sustainably to the world energy supply.
