The Second International Energy Efficiency Scorecard of 12 major economies finds Canada behind most countries, Including China, France, and Australia and the United States. Only Russia was worse.

The International Energy Efficiency Scorecard ranks the world's largest economies on their energy efficiency policies and programs. The rankings include Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, South Korea, Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States, and the European Union.

Thirty-one different energy efficiency indicators have been analyzed for each economy ranked in the report. The rankings are determined by scoring out of 100 possible points. Points can be earned in four different categories, including buildings, industry, transportation, and national effort, which measures overall or cross-cutting indicators of energy use at the national level.

Zero Carbon Ontario's mission

100% clean heat and power

Ontario must set a target for generating all of its energy for stationary and transportation uses from zero carbon sources.

Stationary energy covers traditional uses of electricity as well as power for heating and cooling of residential and commercial buildings presently provided by non-renewables (such as oil and gas). Transportation energy includes energy used by cars, trucks, buses, trains, air travel. The target should include plans to electrify most modes of public transit.
