100% Renewable Energy – Is it possible?
CanREA member Matthew McCarville from Eco-PEI has produced an excellent YouTube video “Powering Canada and the World Using Wind, Water and Sunlight” based on the research of Mark Jacobson at Stanford University. Jacobson’s major study “A Plan for a Sustainable Future – How to get all of energy from solar, water and wind power by 2030” was published in 2009. It showed that there is more than enough renewable energy available globally to meet all of our energy needs. McCarville’s video describes the reneweable resources available in Atlantic Canada and accross North America, and shows how each resource could play significant role by the middle of this century.
