Economic Note evaluating the implicit subsidies to wind power, biomass and community power plants

Invoking “obvious economic reasons,” i.e., annual savings of $24 million, the Quebec government cancelled six small hydroelectric power projects this past February. In April, however, it announced new supply contracts for wind power, a sector that is already guaranteed to receive an implicit subsidy of $695 million a year until 2020. For Youri Chassin, economist at the MEI and the author of this Economic Note, we have an urgent need for rational decisions based on our actual energy requirements and not on artificial support of various energy sectors.

Economic Note describing energy production and consumption in Quebec

Questions about energy are currently in the news on an almost daily basis in the province of Quebec. In addition, the Quebec government intends to adopt a new law on hydrocarbons in the near future, and next year, a new energy policy. In order to be able to discuss these topics seriously, it is useful to have a global picture of Quebec's energy reality. This Economic Note therefore provides a general overview of Quebec's energy consumption and production. It also highlights some of the energy challenges that the province will face in the years to come.

Research Paper analysing efforts made by the Canadian petroleum industry to reduce its impact on the environment

The goal of this paper is twofold. Part I looks at the historical experience and illustrates how current "cleaner" sources of liquid fuels were anything but in the first stages of their development. Part II describes how Alberta's oil sands are being exploited and illustrates how "win-win-win" innovations are now taking place that are making this industry more efficient and more environmentally friendly.

The New Wireless Spectrum Auction
Interview with Paul Beaudry, Associate Researcher at the MEI, broadcast on July 8 on BNN, the Business News Network.

What are we getting ourselves into with cap and trade?
Op-ed by Youri Chassin, Economist and Research Director at the MEI, published on July 18 in The Gazette.

As part of the MEI's health care research program, our Vice President, Jasmin Guénette, met with patients and health care professionals in order to better understand the positive role played by private medical clinics in Quebec. This short documentary shows that private clinics are responding to a real need and are part of the solution to insure that services are being offered within reasonable time to the population.
