Presentation by Dinara Millington
Canada's oil, natural gas, electricity, and renewable energy supply sectors have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This study produced an economic and financial status of the oil, natural gas, electricity, and renewable energy industries and consider different approaches to recovery. CERI assessed different support pathways from zero to significant government assistance to determine the costs and benefits of different approaches. The study considered how support for Canada's economy, either through direct support to citizens or indirect support through energy sector companies impacts GDP and job creation. Finally, the study assessed the GHG emissions of various pathways to illuminate how different recovery pathways address Canada's GHG emissions reduction goals.
