About the Project

Models

This initiative drew on future energy models from the following organizations. Each of these models helped us visualize and predict what a low-carbon future could look like for Canadians living in rural and urban communities. The purpose of the website was to combine this information in an accessible way and help remove some of the uncertainty surrounding what a low-carbon future could mean for homes, vehicles, travel and shopping.
