Green Energy Policy

Good government policy, at the national, provincial or local level, is a key to finding solutions to the environmental dilemma posed by heavy energy use.

Good policies, such as an overall plan to improve energy efficiency, are the most effective means of reducing energy use. Bad policies, like subsidies to the nuclear or oil and gas industries, are one reason why green energy is not developing as quickly as everyone would like.

This section looks at some positive energy-related policies that are providing solutions to environmental problems in Saskatchewan and around the world.
