Net Zero Emerging Concepts and Technologies Research Program
June 1, 2023
Nova Scotia won’t get to net-zero by 2050 with proven renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. The Net Zero Emerging Concepts and Technologies (ECT) Research Program will fund projects that seek to identify gaps in carbon-reduction pathways for hard-to-abate emissions and to support made-in-Nova Scotia solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions required to achieve net-zero by 2050.
In-Person Guest Lecture - Just Climate Policies: Modelling for Evidence-Based Decision Making
May 25, 2023
Dr. Taco Niet will share details of the modelling work being carried out in his research lab at Simon Fraser University as well as present on how he and his team are building models to support sustainable development. He will first explain the concepts of climate justice and how they can be applied in energy systems modelling and then highlight some recent work from his research team. This includes the development of OSeMOSYS Global, building CLEWs Canada as well as community engaged research.
The Business Case for ESG
May 18, 2023
Join Nancy Foran, President of ESG Partners, for an introduction to ESG. She will provide us with context around this rapidly emerging topic and explain why the consideration of environmental, social and governance issues are becoming increasingly important to businesses in Atlantic Canada and around the world. The session will explain the business case for ESG and highlight the emerging trends impacting our industry.
The Proposed New England - Maritimes Offshore Energy Corridor
May 11, 2023
A coalition of seven developers of offshore wind, green hydrogen, and transmission solutions has formed to investigate the New England – Maritimes Offshore Energy Corridor (NEMOEC), a proposed offshore transmission corridor that would support regional decarbonization goals and reliability.
Nature-based solutions and climate: How to implement through the Global Standard
April 20, 2023
Interest around nature-based solutions (NbS) is growing in government, non-governmental organizations and the private sector. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) published the Global Standard for NbS in 2020 and, since then, the concept has become more effectively integrated with climate change adaptation and mitigation. But there are still challenges when it comes to understanding what really is – and what is not – an NbS, and how best to support sustainable implementation.

Registration is encouraged, but not required. To register, please call 902-684-0103.
Location: Isabel & Roy Jodrey Memorial Library, 10 Main Street, Hantsport, Nova Scotia.
Small Reactors, Big Opportunities
March 23, 2023
Since 2018, New Brunswick has been making progress towards the development and deployment of advanced small modular reactors – the next generation of nuclear technology. Development of these innovative clean energy technologies represents a significant opportunity to help New Brunswick, Canada, and other countries around the world reduce carbon emissions. In this webinar, representatives from NB Power, ARC Clean Technology, and Moltex Energy will provide an overview of advanced small modular reactor development activities.
Applying Behavioural Science to Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation
March 14, 2023
Behaviour change is an integral component of any successful climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts. As such, behavioural science can provide a valuable tool in the efforts to increase climate change mitigation and adaptation activities. It can help us to understand the psychological barriers to climate change action. This session will provide an introduction to behavioural science and its potential applications to support the transition to a low-carbon economy.
