Advancing Sustainable Clean Energy Cooperation in North America

The meeting has concluded. Thank you to all who joined the webcast!

Building on the Leaders’ Statement on a North American Climate, Clean Energy, and Environment Partnership, as well as the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Canada, Mexico and the United States concerning climate change and energy collaboration between the three NAFTA countries, this JPAC session will examine the links between innovation in clean energy and energy efficiency, in the context of addressing climate change and advancing clean and secure power.

Sustainable energy solutions must embrace the challenge of efficient transmission, delivery, and consumption, as well as clean-energy choice and production.  Efficiency and conservation are critical aspects of a clean and sustainable energy future. Without conservation efforts, including fuel-efficient products and high-efficiency lighting, clean-energy alternatives remain constrained by the need to store energy for periods of high demand.

This JPAC session will bring together experts from industry, academia and government, as well as members of the wider public, to identify new opportunities for creating a coordinated clean and efficient energy future in North America.

What are the existing approaches for clean energy generation and consumption? How can we ensure that new technologies are adapted to the different realities of communities to ensure greater acceptance by all segments of society?

This session will gather perspectives on how to:

  • ensure a balanced and objective analysis of environmental and social impacts when integrating clean energy solutions into the current energy mix;
  • speed up the adoption and integration of existing sustainable clean energy technologies; and
  • highlight the link between clean energy, energy efficiency and conservation technologies.
