Global Energy Crises: What’s going on & what does it mean for Canada?
Canada West Foundation Virtual Event
Thursday, Oct. 14, 2021, 12:30-1:30 pm MDT
Energy crises around the globe are hitting headlines daily–from natural gas shortages and skyrocketing power prices in the E.U., to coal shortages and scheduled blackouts in China, to gasoline shortages in the UK. While these issues may seem far away, there are undoubtedly implications for Canada as well.
Join our panel of experts for a pop-up policy webinar where we will explore:
- What is driving supply shortages in these traditional fuels?
- To what extent has a push for higher renewable integration left power systems vulnerable?
- As countries around the world work towards meeting net-zero objectives, should we expect more shortages?
- How will Canadians feel the impact? And do these events represent a threat or an opportunity for the Canadian energy sector?
