Examining hydroelectricity's impact on transition to low‑carbon economy
Countries around the world are continually looking for new ways to reduce their carbon footprint. Although Canada is one of the few countries to produce the majority of our electricity from hydroelectricity, our successful transition to a low-carbon economy could be determined by how strategically this resource is used.
Dr. Brendan Haley, a researcher with Dalhousie’s School for Resource and Environmental Studies, is spending the next two years examining Nova Scotia’s energy policy. He is specifically focusing on how hydroelectricity can complement the other renewable energy technologies we currently use. Dr. Haley’s work has the potential to determine policy best practices for provinces considering importing hydroelectricity and transitioning to a low-carbon economy.
