Energy is a fundamental driving force of virtually all aspects of community infrastructure, it dictates how we work, play and live, and thus developing and implementing sustainable energy systems are essential for developing sustainable communities. The United Nations General Assembly defines sustainable energy as “energy that is accessible, cleaner and more efficient…and…paves a path out of poverty to greater prosperity for all”. Achieving sustainable energy involves a complex process of developing energy systems in a manner that minimizes environmental and health impacts, creates economic opportunity, and ensures everyone has equitable access to power. This conversation brings together leaders of innovative Canadian energy initiatives with the research team to discuss solutions for developing sustainable energy systems.
