Ontario’s Long Term Energy Plan
The most recent Long-Term Energy Plan (LTEP), Delivering Fairness and Choice, was released by the Ministry of Energy on October 26, 2017. The full version, associated background and recent activities are available on the Ministry of Energy website. The LTEP builds on the years of investment that Ontarians made to renew and clean up the province’s electricity system. As a result of phasing out coal-fired electricity generation in 2014, emissions for Ontario’s electricity sector are forecast in 2017 to account for only about two percent of the province’s total greenhouse gas emissions. The province’s robust supply of electricity will be sufficient to meet Ontario’s foreseeable electricity demand well into the next decade. This leaves the province well positioned to plan for and meet future challenges.
