Quebec's Green Future: The Lowest-Cost Route to Green Gas Reductions

By Jean-Thomas Bernard and Jean-Yves Duclos

Abstract

The authors say Quebec’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions must face some key facts. First, the possibilities of an effective reduction of GHG emissions through the substitution of one energy source for another are limited in Quebec. Second, Quebec’s era of low-cost hydroelectric production is finished. And third, low domestic electricity prices favour heavy usage and limit Quebec’s capacity to export clean hydroelectricity. This Backgrounder is also available in French.economic growth and innovation, greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), Quebec, carbon tax
