Moving away from an integrated multi-fuel, multi-grid energy system towards a fully electric single-grid system has been proposed in a number of jurisdictions as a pathway to significantly reduce Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions. But, the viability of a policy of widespread electrification in Canada, in terms of the required new power infrastructure, the costs to households and businesses, and the relative cost and effectiveness of the GHG mitigation potential have not been comprehensively evaluated. With a goal of informing these aspects of this important discussion the Canadian Gas Association (CGA) engaged ICF to assess and illustrate the costs and benefits of several policy-driven electrification approaches in Canada.
