Canada’s Changing Energy Landscape


Canada's Changing Energy Landscape

March 1st, 2016
Embassy of Canada to Japan


In continued support of the Canada-Japan Energy relationship, this year, in partnership with the Embassy of Canada to Japan, and the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Japan will host a seminar and networking event focused on policy developments and commercial opportunities in traditional and renewable energy in Canada.

Canada is the world’s fifth-largest natural gas producer and it is a potential LNG supplier to Japan and Asia.  Canada is also an oil producer and has significant oil reserves.  Canada’s strengths lie in the fact that it is  it is well positioned to become a reliable and stable supplier, has a large resource potential and convenient market access to Japan across the Pacific basin.

With 65 % of total electricity generated in Canada coming from renewable sources, Canada has the third largest renewable energy capacity in the world and offers foreign investors opportunities across the entire value chain, from technology development and fuel supply to energy generation, storage and distribution. Renewables continue to account for an increasing share of Canadian electric capacity added each year, hydroelectricity being the largest source accounting for over 60% of electricity generation. Other renewable sources, such as biomass, wind, marine and solar, contribute to increasing Canada’s renewable energy generation—wind and solar energy are the fastest growing sources of electricity in Canada.

Canada's Department of Environment and Climate Change is developing a climate change framework and new policies to promote renewable energy by working closely with the the provincial governments. Alberta and British Columbia have introduced carbon pricing mechanisms, and a Cap and Trade system will link California, Ontario and Quebec. In late November 2015, Canada pledged $300 million a year in funding towards clean technology and innovation.

This seminar will open with a plenary session looking at Canada as a whole, followed by province-specific updates from Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec. Following the plenary, the conference will be divided into two simultaneous breakout sessions focusing on: Renewable Energy and Clean Technologies  including, solar and wind power, smart grid and eco-housing; and, Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies.
