Renewable Energy Potential for Canda: REMAP 2030: Doubling the Global Share of Renewable Energy by 2030
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
REMAP is the first of a kind project that brings together 25 countries to determine the feasibility of doubling the global share of renewable energy by 2030. It collaborates amongst IRENA staff and the energy experts of the 25 countries. This paper applies the methodology designed by IRENA to map the renewable energy outlook in Canada and to identify the most cost-effective options to increase the renewable energy share from 21% to 33% in 2030, or which 5% of this share presents cost savings. By end-use sectors, REMAP assess options to increase the renewable share from 27% to 38% for industry, 34% to 45% for commercial and residential, 4% to 11% for transport, and 66% to 80% for the power sector. Further cost savings can be attained if carbon taxes and external effects on fossil fuels, and international commodity prices are considered.
