Clean energy technologies, services, and policies accelerate the shift to a renewable-based energy economy. They accomplish this by increasing renewable energy supply, reducing consumer and industrial energy demand, improving the infrastructure systems that transmit, store and use energy and enabling market penetration of clean-energy solutions. The demand for clean energy, and thus, less dependence on fossil fuels, continues to grow from both businesses and consumers.

Tracking the Energy Revolution—Global, and Tracking the Energy Revolution—Canada, are two reports released in 2015 by Clean Energy Canada. In this 60 minute session, Merran Smith will discuss the 10 most significant investment, policy, technology, and societal trends and developments that both defined and propelled the worldwide shift to clean energy in 2014.

Webinar Highlights

In this webinar you will learn:

  • The latest evidence on clean energy's impact on carbon pollution
  • innovative examples driving down costs and making clean energy more accessible
  • Global carbon pricing trends
