Committee Objectives

The Energy Transition policy committee aims to develop a sustainable, reliable and affordable energy system in the Toronto Region, enabling business growth and securing our place as a low-carbon leader.

Together, these members advise, guide and shape the Board’s efforts to champion: 

  • Reduction of direct and climate-change causing emissions in Toronto and Ontario
  • Scale-up and commercialization of locally developed cleantech solutions to position local innovators for success in global markets 

How We'll Get There

To reach our objectives, we work to:

  • Drive the adoption of climate technologies, including through lighthouse demonstration projects, to develop a competitive advantage for the Region by accelerating the pace to net-zero focused on technologies to reduce building, transportation and energy emissions  

  • Advocate for policy changes and investment necessary to build out EV infrastructure and accelerate adoption  

  • Contribute to the reduction of direct emissions through effective and business-friendly policy  

  • Identify solutions for the build-out of sufficient clean electricity generation, transmission and distribution as well as charging infrastructure at scale
