Going Green: Cost and GHG Emissions in the Canadian Electricity Sector

Jason Arbour, Jordan Juravsky, Shahar Lazarev & Josh Zwiebel
Electricity generation in Canada contributes significantly to national carbon emissions.

However, because renewable energy technology grows progressively more cost-effective with time, there is an economic incentive to withhold investment in the short term.
