A comprehensive discussion of the importance of sustainable energy and its future in Canada.

Canadian energy systems need to evolve. Beyond providing essential energy services, they must respond to climate change, enhance social justice, and remain sensitive to local cultures and traditions. Can they do this and still make financial sense? Sustainable Energy Transitions in Canada gathers experts from across the country to share perspectives on leading theories and practices. Contributors first deal with the conceptual aspects of energy transitions, investigating such topics as energy justice and poverty, the decolonization of energy, community energy planning, the role of energy systems modeling, and links between energy and climate change policy. Building on this foundation, they offer case studies that cover the North, the Atlantic region, Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia, along with crucial but difficult-to-decarbonize sectors like transportation and space heating.
