Toronto, 26 October - IETA welcomes today’s release of Ontario's 2017 Long-Term Energy Plan, outlining the 20-year roadmap for Ontario’s energy sector. We congratulate Ontario on its remarkable progress, to date, towards decarbonizing its economy. This progress and long-term plan, built on a set of policy initiatives buttressed by a carbon market, offers a cost-effective model for other jurisdictions to consider. Greenhouse gas reductions must now be extended across non-power sectors in the province. More than ever, it is vital to tap market forces in cooperation with regional partners - like California and Quebec - to ensure costs remain low and fair across Ontario consumers and business.
