About the Energy & Climate Team

The Ecology Action Centre's Energy & Climate Team seeks to phase out the use of fossil fuels in Nova Scotia and strives for an electricity system that is clean, reliable and affordable. We take action through analyzing and advocating for effective policy, research, piloting solutions, and building a coalition of diverse groups that share our vision for a just transition to zero-carbon energy in Nova Scotia.
