The Canadian Natural Gas Opportunity: GHG Reduction Potential to 2030
Investment in transmission and distribution systems and access to an affordable, plentiful supply has dramatically changed the role of natural gas in the Canadian and continental market over several decades. At a national level, natural gas provides 32% of the energy used in Canada on an annual basis and plays a critical role as affordable energy for the Canadian economy.
As Canada enters the 2016-17 winter heating season, the resource base and supply of natural gas are at record levels across North America. In turn, natural gas storage levels are at new highs, helping ensure ample supplies and low prices for natural gas customers this winter. As a result natural gas is expected to remain the most affordable energy option for Canadian homes and businesses this heating season.
Canadian Gas Association Submission to the New Brunswick Legislature Select Committee on Climate Change
The Government of New Brunswick has launched a Select Committee on Climate Change to explore solutions to reduce emissions while respecting New Brunswick’s distinct economic challenges and opportunities. The province’s economy features export and energy-intensive industries. As a result, it is important that emissions reductions solutions are cost-effective and aimed at strengthening energy efficiency, driving innovation, and increasing access to affordable, clean, safe, and reliable sources of energy.
The Canadian Gas Association (CGA) welcomes the opportunity to outline in this report, “The Natural Gas Opportunity in New Brunswick”, how natural gas and the natural gas delivery industry can help the province meet its economic and environmental objectives.
