Episode 96 of Down to Business podcast
U.S. President Joe Biden announced a plan last week that calls for US$2 trillion of investment in infrastructure upgrades, about half of which are focused on clean technology and the transition to a low carbon economy.
So what does this massive spending plan mean for Canada?
This week, on Down to Business, Sarah Petrevan, policy director for Clean Energy Canada, a think tank at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, broke down the announcement.
As the U.S. moves towards a cleaner economy, Petrevan sees an “amazing economic opportunity” for Canada, given it’s abundance of clean energy and the spate of cleantech companies emerging. There are risks, but as the U.S. positions itself for a green economy, Canada needs to keep pace.
