Reflection to help document

In order to help citizens and experts in their thinking on the subject of fossil fuels, a document that contains a set of information and data to provide a general profile of the current Quebec sectors of oil and natural gas is available on the site of the new 2016-2025 Energy Policy. This document summarizes the progress of knowledge and concerns, particularly with regard to environmental protection, raised the possible development of hydrocarbon production industry in Quebec.

Quebec Energy Policy 2016-2025

The approach to give Quebec a new energy policy is to develop a common understanding of challenges and opportunities, build consensus, as well as provide general guidelines and concrete commitments. The new energy policy is part of a global energy and economic context in full movement. It is intended that the Quebec increase its leadership in renewable energy, energy efficiency and technological innovation. The aim is also to highlight responsibly all resources and energy heritage of Quebecers, to reduce our dependence on imported energy and to continue the development of a low carbon economy.
