How can the transition to clean energy help solve energy poverty in Canada?
This session will explore the concept of energy poverty in the context of driving a just transition – what it is, where it happens, who experiences it, how can the transition to clean energy solve energy poverty – and offer examples of policies and actions that help to alleviate, reduce, and ultimately end energy poverty for individuals and communities, while pushing us toward a zero-carbon future.
