Business in Vancouver reports on the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade's 2021 Energy Forum, the theme of this year's event was "Finding net zero and growing our economy, together." Radha Curpen speaks about some of the things it will take for British Columbia and Canada to meet net zero goals:
Last week, Bennett Jones released a 2021 Economic Outlook and companion paper on accelerating the net zero energy transition. Canada’s net zero ambitions will require public and private investment equal to 1.5% of Canada’s total GDP before 2030, said Radha Curpen, a managing partner at Bennett Jones.
“This is a massive investment and will require the transformation of our energy infrastructure in Canada through electrification, the acceleration of renewables solutions for heavy industry and long haul transportation, new sources of energy, carbon capture and storage using our natural resources and other areas,” Curpen said.
