ABSTRACT

Research conducted in 2016 examined the Ontario specific challenges of meeting emission reduction objectives and optimizing carbon pricing under Ontario’s Cap and Trade system for the purpose of informing Ontario’s Long-Term Energy Plan (LTEP).

Over forty carbon reducing technologies were evaluated for their emission reduction potential in Ontario, the impact on the need for electrification, and the costs to implement them.
