Despite having a small relatively small population on a global scale, Canada has some of the highest energy consumption levels in the world. According to the World Bank, Canadians have the highest energy use per capita in the globe, ahead of the United States and Australia. We are also one of the largest producers of energy, including crude oil, natural gas, coal, hydro, nuclear, wind, and tidal. This combination of usage and production makes Canada uniquely poised as energy continues to be the hot button topic of the 20th century.
Energy is the lifeblood and bedrock of Canadian society. From the oil sands in Alberta to the hydro dams along our waterways to offshore natural gas deposits on the Atlantic coast, we harness and product energy like few other countries on earth. Energy powers our society, from heating our homes to connecting our telecommunications networks to saving lives in hospitals. The energy sector is at the heart of our economy, and we believe it’s worth talking about.
At Fuel Cells Canada, we want to start the conversation about energy and its connection to our national economy and everyday life alike. We believe in a shared space where we can talk about a new crude oil discovery or innovation in wind tech, at the same time we’re having a conversation about how to winterize your home or the pros and cons of a hybrid vehicle. If it has to do with energy, we want to talk about it.
