GARDN Executive Director Contributes to the “Positioning Canada’s Electricity Sector in a Carbon Constrained Future” Report
The Standing Senate Committee on Energy, the Environment and Natural Resources is studying what it will cost ordinary Canadians and businesses to meet Canada’s GHG reduction targets. The committee will make any necessary recommendations to the federal government that will help achieve its GHG reduction commitments in a manner that is sustainable, affordable, efficient, equitable and achievable.
The committee is examining the effect Canada’s GHG reduction targets will have on five sectors of the Canadian economy: electricity, oil and gas, transportation, buildings, and trade-exposed, emission-intensive industries that are mostly heavy industries that compete in international markets such as steel and cement manufacturing.
Sylvain Cofsky, Executive Director of the Green Aviation Research & Development Network (GARDN), counts as one the witnesses of the report regarding green transportation, along with Fassi Kafyeke, Senior Director, Strategic Technology and Advanced Product at Bombardier Aerospace.
