Tracking the Clean Energy Revolution: Boutique Goes Big

Jan 27 2015 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Join us for another FREE BCSEA Webinar.

Clean energy jobs are growing incredibly quickly. In 2013 37% more Canadians worked in the renewable energy industry than in 2009. As a result, by 2013 the clean energy sector—encompassing manufacturing, power production, energy efficiency, and biofuels—accounted for more direct Canadian jobs than the oil sands.

At the end of 2014 Clean Energy Canada released a pair or reports titled Tracking the Energy Revolution Global and Tracking the Energy Revolution Canada. The reports are full of maps, charts and graphics that tell the story of how plunging equipment costs, strong investor interest and government and business leadership are driving a global shift to renewable energy sources such as wind, sun and water. During the webinar, Jeremy Moorhouse – Clean Energy Canada’s Senior Analyst and co-author of both reports – will review the findings of each report and answer audience questions.

Jeremy focuses on British Columbia’s sustainable transportation and renewable energy sectors. He is a professional engineer with eight years experience improving the environmental performance of energy systems across Canada. He served as a technical analyst with the Pembina Institute between 2006 and 2011 before pursuing a masters in Resource and Environmental Management at Simon Fraser University, studying with Mark Jaccard. He has authored and supported numerous reports on energy systems in Canada, addressing transportation, electricity, and heat energy systems. Recently he co-authored Lock In Jobs, Not Pollution, and The Cleanest LNG in the World? a pair of reports on British Columbia’s proposed LNG industry and Tracking the Energy Revolution Canada.
