Since the Summit

Since the Energy 2030 Summit and the subsequent publishing of the Energy 2030 Blueprint, WGSI has engaged in a series of impact activities aimed at making the recommendations made in the Energy 2030 Blueprint a reality.

FRONTIER SCIENCE ROUNDTABLE

On September 25, 2017, the Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS) at Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), Waterloo Global Science Initiative (WGSI) and the Waterloo Institute for Sustainable Energy (WISE) held a roundtable discussion on the potential of today’s frontier scientific research to disrupt tomorrow’s energy system. 

The Frontier Science Roundtable’s purpose was to share with Generation Energy - a national dialogue on Canada’s path to a low-carbon future hosted by Natural Resources Canada - a science perspective on the potential of today’s frontier scientific research to disrupt tomorrow’s energy system. The Generation Energy campaign invited all Canadians to contribute their ideas on how Canada should develop its resources more sustainably and invest in the energy of tomorrow. The information collected through Generation Energy will be used to design an approach for how the federal government can work with provinces and territories to create the affordable energy and innovative jobs Canadians want.
