Is Cost Driving Energy Solutions?

Canada continues to add energy capacity to the grid, with almost every province and territory having new assets under development. The solutions are being driven by power companies, energy developers and, in some cases, government initiatives.

When faced with the decision to develop new power assets, what is the driving force behind the choice that is made? Do communities have the information needed to make the best decision possible based on short-term and long-term costs, or are they at the mercy of the preference of the power utility that services their community?

Jean-François Nolet, Vice-President, Policy, Government & Public Affairs, participated on a panel that discussed the cost of energy development, and how communities can understand the best possible solution based on geography, technology, and grid capacity.
