How can we address climate change when we approve pipelines?

Addressing climate change has become a top priority around the world. As consumers, we all have a role to play in managing the amount of energy we use.

Renewable sources of energy like wind, solar and hydro are a growing part of the energy mix (currently supplying close to 18% of Canada’s energy needs), but their ability to economically and efficiently meet Canada’s energy needs is still limited. That’s why natural gas is becoming a more important source of electricity in Canada, accounting for 9.2% of electricity generated in 2016. (Source: Natural Resources Canada)

While alternative energy sources will continue to grow, Canadians need reliable and economical energy they can trust that is available all the time. A safe and secure supply of responsibly produced oil and low-carbon natural gas is an important part of Canada’s energy future.

Pipelines help deliver cleaner energy options like natural gas to the world.

As the world addresses climate change, Canada’s energy will be an important part of the solution. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Canada can help lower global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions when it’s used to displace higher-emitting fuels for electricity generation.

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA) World Energy Outlook 2018, global demand for natural gas will increase 43% by 2040, replacing coal as the world’s second-largest energy source. Canada’s natural gas can help reduce coal use around the world enabling coal-dependent countries like India and China to reduce emissions, as well as helping the three billion people using fuels like wood or biomass to improve their health and quality of life.

Canada’s abundant supply of natural gas (1,220 trillion cubic feet, enough for 300 years at current levels) is transported to LNG terminals by pipeline, where it will be exported to new markets. Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA) members will ensure this vital resource is shipped safely, building a better energy future for all.

Increasing world population and the growing global economy mean energy demand is rising. While solar and wind energy production is rising, forecasts indicate oil and natural gas could still provide the majority of the world’s energy in 2040.

Pipelines, and pipeline operators, remain a vital part of the evolving energy ecosystem Canada and the world depend on.

World energy demand is growing.

Demand for oil and natural gas to meet the world’s needs will also grow.

Petroleum supply in Canada is exceeding pipeline capacity.

Canada is well positioned to meet the world’s need for responsibly produced energy.
