The Economic Impacts of Electrification Initiatives (EI2) models are user-friendly tools that allow to easily analyze jobs and economic impacts from electrification-related projects. The results are an estimate.

EI2 – Power Production 
  • EI2 – Wind
  • Others in development
EI2 – Energy Service
  • EI2 – ThermalComfortResidential
  • Others in development

EI2 – Wind

EI2 – Wind model is designed to estimate the province-wide and territory-wide economic impacts associated with developing and operating land-based wind power generation facilities in Canada. Default data based on industry average are included in the model, which can be used to perform a generic impact analysis.


EI2 – ThermalComfortResidential

EI2 – TCR model is designed to estimate the province-wide and territory-wide economic impacts associated with providing thermal comfort services in the residential sector in Canada. Default data based on industry average are included in the model, which can be used to perform a generic impact analysis.
The model is functional but is still under development. Interpret the results with caution.

More information on the interpretation of the results and the limitations of the models can be found on the JEDI website.
