Canadian Wind Energy Association's graphic Powering Canada's Future as of December 2015.

This page contains resources about provinces that have set or are setting targets for reducing the carbon emissions generated by the generation of electricity.

Ontario - 50% nuclear. Phased out coal by 2014 (initially was 2007). Ontario’s target for energy from wind, solar and bio-energy is 10,700 MW (13%) by 2018 (excluding hydroelectric). Planning for 9,000 MW from hydro by 2018

Quebec - already nearly 100% (98% hydro, 2% nuclear, <1% conventional thermal)

Manitoba - 30% from renewables by ...

Carbon-Free and Nuclear-Free: A Roadmap for U.S. Energy Policy http://www.ieer.org/carbonfree/

In July 2008 the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a...

Stationary power comprises 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) and does not include power for transportation (e.g. cars, trucks, buses, trains, air travel), although some forms of transportation ought to be powered by electricity such as trains.) The target should include plans to electrify most modes of public transit

Renewable energy is produced from resources such as plants, sun, wave, tides and wind but these...

Energy conservation is necessary to reduce our demand for stationary power. According to their study, Julian Allwood and colleagues at the University of Cambridge analysed the buildings, vehicles and industry around us and applied "best practice" efficiency changes to them. They concluded that simple changes like installing better building insulation could cut the world's energy demands by three-quarters.

Professor Donald Sadoway, the inventor of a version of the liquid metal battery.

"Batteries are an attractive option for grid-scale energy storage applications because of their small footprint and flexible siting. A high-temperature (700 °C) magnesium–antimony (Mg||Sb) liquid metal battery comprising a negative electrode of Mg, a molten salt electrolyte (MgCl2–KCl–NaCl), and a positive electrode of Sb...

Mark Ruffalo, known for his portrayal of Dr. Banner and the Incredible Hulk, spoke with Mark Jacobson of the Stanford Atmosphere/Energy Program and Marco Krapels of Rabobank about powering the world with wind, water and sunlight.
