In an interview with The Future Economy, Alex Pourbaix highlights how the push for cleaner and greener energy is transforming Canada’s energy sector and is leading to growth in other parts of the country’s economy. He maintains a positive outlook for the entrepreneurial spirit of Canadians, but there are some regulatory hurdles to be cleared before the country can fully realize its potential.

If the world is going to meet the commitments under the Paris Agreement, it is not going to be done by doing business as usual. We are going to have to develop many new and advanced existing technologies to get there. That actually is a really exciting area for Canada going forward.
