A Pathway Towards 100% Renewable Energy in Canada
Mark Z. Jacobson is a Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University in California. He has also developed roadmaps to transition countries, states, cities, and towns to 100% clean, renewable energy for all purposes and computer models to examine grid stability in the presence of high penetrations of renewable energy. In this Solar Canada presentation, Mark Jacobson will focus on how Canada can transition to 100% renewable energy, identifying the percentage for each of the energy sectors, while highlighting how power demand and costs can be reduced as a result. He views Canada’s most significant advantage is our vast amount of hydro water power which can act like a big peaking power battery.
