ENERGY 2020 is an integrated multi-region energy model that provides a complete and detailed simulation of supply and demand sectors for all types of fuels. Energy 2020 can encompass the entire North America and produce results for 1990-2050.

Energy 2020 is a bottom-up end-use energy model that in combination with a top-down macroeconomic model forms ECCC’s integrated hybrid modeling framework Energy, Emissions and Economy Model for Canada (E3MC). Energy 2020 is a partial equilibrium simulation model with an integrated regional, multi-sector energy analysis system that simulates energy supply, price and demand across thirty-five detailed fuel types.


GHG and air pollutant projections and mitigation policies, including carbon-pricing, coal-based electricity generation phase-out, feed-in-tariffs, vehicle regulations, building retrofits, industrial energy programs.
