Minister Lunn releases energy outlook

OTTAWA -- The Honourable Gary Lunn, Minister of Natural Resources, today released Canada's Energy Outlook: The Reference Case 2006, a long-term projection of energy consumption, production and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from now until 2020.

"The Outlook helps us understand where we are today and where we are going tomorrow in terms of our energy use," said Minister Lunn. "Canada's New Government is working to implement a real approach that delivers a healthy environment for all of us. This report will be a useful tool to guide policy decisions for Canada's energy future." The report is consistent with historical trends and shows that economic growth, as well as changes to the structure of our energy supply, are expected to continue.

Natural Resources Canada has been publishing long-term energy outlooks for three decades. This most recent report reflects consultations involving all the provinces and other key stakeholders.
