Power Perspectives 2022
Canada’s power sector had an eventful 2021, as the federal and provincial governments sharpened their focus on addressing the effects of climate change with various regulations and initiatives aimed at transitioning to a greener economy or achieving net-zero targets. Last year also saw the continued emergence of clean and renewable energy sources like hydrogen and nuclear, fuelling growth and investment in these spaces and creating an abundance of opportunities and challenges for public and private project proponents and other industry stakeholders moving forward.
