Analyzing Canada’s Ecosystem for Carbon Emissions Reduction Technologies

March 07, 2017 | State of the Market Report

In October 2016, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made a landmark announcement requiring Canadian provinces to implement a carbon pricing scheme by 2018. In this report, we analyze Canada’s ecosystem for carbon emissions reduction technologies, identifying both well-positioned and high-potential technology developers capable of driving down the country’s emissions across seven key sectors – oil and gas, transportation, electricity, buildings, industrial, agriculture, and waste. Looking towards Canada’s 2030 emissions target, several promising technology developers present near-term solutions for incremental emissions benefits, as truly disruptive emissions reduction technologies require mid- to long-term development before widespread commercial deployment.
