Canadian complex energy systems can only be properly understood with relevant data and tools to interpret them. Electricity system models are among the most important tools used, around the world, to engage in the energy transition, as they help understand and increase awareness on energy transition issues and opportunities, and inform policy makers on most effectives measures or investments. In this context and as part of the Energy Modelling Initiative, two calls for modelling projects were conducted.
The first one is completed. The main goal of this call was to illustrate and analyze various scenarios compatible with the orientations and objectives of the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change.
The second one started on October 20, 2020. This call focuses on the transformation of the electricity sector and its contribution to decarbonization of Canada’s economy.
