Varcoe: 'We Need to Get After It' — Enbridge CEO Sees Future Growth for Canadian Energy

'The bottom line is the time has come to take a fresh look at Canada's role in the global energy transition. The responsibility, and the opportunity, is (here) today — and we simply need to get after it'

By Chris Varcoe

The world has moved into an energy crisis, additional supplies are required and a window has opened to build new liquefied natural gas developments, says Enbridge CEO Al Monaco.

In such turbulence, Canada can play an “outsized role” in the future of global energy, although regulatory challenges need to be removed so the country can provide low-carbon, secure and affordable energy to the world.

Roll Up Your Sleeves, Canada: The World Needs Our Energy

Speaking at the Canadian Club Toronto, Enbridge’s Al Monaco calls for a ‘fresh look’ at how Canada can lead the global energy transition

The post-pandemic “return to normal” many imagined did not include an incomprehensible conflict in Ukraine and global energy crisis.

Yet here we are. Decades-high inflation, major supply-chain issues, pain at the pump and rising home heating and electricity costs, and all the while questions about what it all means for climate objectives and the pace of the energy transition.

From Scrap Plastic to Fantastic: Enbridge Gas Workers Rethink Waste

Innovation breathes new life into plastic pipeline scrap destined for landfill

What comes to mind when you see a plastic Muskoka chair?

If you’re Tom Canellos or Graham Waller, you’re reminded of an opportunity to improve the environment and create value from waste.

Canellos and Waller worked together in a Toronto-based Enbridge Gas construction group in 2019, when they noticed a lot of plastic polyethylene pipe was discarded as garbage by Enbridge and its contractors.

Could that high-grade yellow plastic be recycled, rather than heading to landfill? It was a problem, the friends decided, that needed solving.

Digging in to Help Reforest the Minnesota Million

How many millions of trees can be planted in a million acres? The state of Minnesota is going to find out.

A group of partners, including non-profits and government organizations, has set a goal to reforest one million acres by 2040. Projections indicate the campaign - called the Minnesota Million - will reduce the state’s yearly carbon emissions by nearly 20%.

Enbridge investment drives $800,000 donation to Nature Conservancy of Canada for preservation of Beaver Hills, the ‘spine’ of Alberta’s biosphere

Tourists and Alberta residents aren’t the only ones flocking to the Beaver Hills biosphere area for recreational purposes.

Winds of Change: France's First Offshore Wind Turbine Installed

Saint-Nazaire Offshore Wind Farm expected to generate equivalent of 20% of Loire-Atlantique region’s electricity consumption

France has some 20,000 kilometres of coastline, and control over an estimated 11 million square km of territorial waters.

And as a potential offshore wind powerhouse, the country took a very important step this week.

The first turbine at the Saint-Nazaire Offshore Wind Project has been installed, a key milestone in the construction of Enbridge’s first wind farm in France—which also happens to be the first offshore turbine installed in French waters.

A 'Generational Transformation' for Ontario's Waste Sector

Enbridge Gas, Ontario Waste Management Association announce RNG project to decarbonize waste collection trucks

About 130 million litres of diesel.

That’s the jump at the pump required, every year, for Ontario’s fleet of about 3,650 waste collection and haulage vehicles to get around.

What if these heavy-haul trucks not only carried waste—but were powered on waste?

From Waste to Warmth: 'The Best of Both Worlds'

New Ridge RNG facility planned for southwestern Ontario landfill, with support from Enbridge Gas
