President Steenkamp: Dr. Runa Das on energy poverty

When it comes to energy, equitability is key. In fact, UN Sustainable Development Goal #7 is “Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all."

The climate is changing rapidly and we must transition to clean energy, but what happens when Canadians can't afford to heat their homes in winter or cool them in summer? And who is being left behind?

This week I had a fascinating chat with Dr. Runa Das about her research into 'energy poverty' and its implications here and around the world.
