Modeling a net-zero energy system for Canada

Canada’s Energy Future is a series of reports that explore possible energy futures for Canadians over the long term. The next report will model how Canada’s energy system could reach net-zero emissions by 2050. This page hosts important documents that are helping us create Canada's Energy Future 2023 (EF2023).
