Dr. Brett Dolter, VP Research and Education, Canadian Society for Ecological Economics.

Brett Dolter is an economist specializing in climate and energy policy research. He has published in journals such as Energy Policy and Ecological Economics. He is the Vice-President of Research and Education for the Canadian Society for Ecological Economics. His PhD dissertation focused on pathways for Greening the Saskatchewan Grid. Prior to his PhD studies Brett worked as a senior policy analyst for the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment.

Abstract: The Province of Saskatchewan has committed to a target of 50% renewable energy in the electricity sector by 2030. This will help reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the province. To contribute to global efforts to mitigate climate change, further action to decarbonize electricity will be necessary. This seminar compares the costs, GHG emissions, jobs impacts, and sustainability impacts of competing pathways for lowering GHG emissions in Saskatchewan’s electricity sector by 80% or more by 2050.
