Solving the climate crisis is humanity’s greatest challenge. The scale of the problem can feel overwhelming. While we have a lot of work to do, the good news is that we already have the solutions we need for Ontario to become a net-zero carbon emissions province. The key to our success is electricity. We must switch from using carbon-intensive fossil fuels for our vehicles, heating and heavy industrial activities to using electricity from zero emissions sources. Try the Energy Mixer to see what it will take to get to net-zero!
Discover how Ontario can achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 by comparing the energy mix currently planned for 2042 to the one we will need to make net zero carbon emissions into reality.
Click Current Mix to see the Ontario government's planned energy mix in 2042 or Target Mix for an example of what the energy mix would be to reach net-zero carbon emissions. Then adjust the sliders to try your own supply mix from Ontario’s main sources of electricity: nuclear, hydro, solar, wind, and gas.
See if you can create an optimal mix by generating enough low-carbon energy to keep both the Emissions and Total Electricity bars in the green zones! Explore the Energy Mixer and then share it with friends, family, and followers.
