What is the future of coal-fired electricity generation in Nova Scotia? How do we move away from this fuel as quickly as we can, while considering the needs of all Nova Scotians in this transition?
In November 2016, the provincial and federal governments reached an agreement-in-principle regarding the phase-out of coal-fired electricity in Nova Scotia, which allows coal plants to continue operating into the 2030 decade. Details are under negotiation between the two governments, and Nova Scotians are discussing our best path forward.
This event will feature special guest Bruce Lourie, who was involved in the phase-out of coal-fired electricity in Ontario. Mr. Lourie will present his perspective, while panelists will be present to provide their reactions and be available for an open discussion period during the event.
