How do we define clean energy?

We define clean energy as the technologies, services and resources that increase renewable energy supply, enhance energy productivity, improve the infrastructure and systems that transmit, store and use energy and delivery key energy services – power, heat and transportation – while reducing carbon pollution. Natural gas and nuclear energy would not be included, but technologies that reduce emissions such as more efficient furnaces, methane reduction or carbon capture and storage, would be.

Why is the survey being conducted?

The survey is being conducted to fill information gaps about the clean energy economy in Canada.

Established economic data typically do not differentiate between companies contributing to the clean energy economy and those that don’t. We are therefore conducting a survey to help fill in the gaps.

Who is conducting the survey?

Navius Research is conducting this survey on behalf of Clean Energy Canada.

Clean Energy Canada is a climate and clean energy think tank at the Morris J Wosk Centre for Dialogue. It is interested in promoting the dialogue about the benefits of expanding the clean energy economy in Canada. Navius Research is a consulting firm based in Vancouver that specializes in analyzing how policy impacts our energy system and economy.

How will survey data be used?

The data shared with us will be used by Clean Energy Canada to help inform government, the private sector and the public about the state of clean energy in Canada.

All individual survey responses will be treated as confidential by Navius Research and will be anonymized and aggregated with those of other companies operating within each clean sector. Data will be suppressed for sectors with fewer than four participating companies. The data collected in this survey will not be used outside the scope of estimating the size of the Canadian clean energy economy.

Will my company be acknowledged for its contribution to the survey?

If you provide consent, your company will receive an email notification directing you to the final publication resulting from this work. Your company’s contribution to the survey will also be acknowledged (in a list of respondent companies) in the final publication if you so choose.
