In Canada, transportation accounts for approximately 31% of total energy use and 37% of greenhouse gas emissions (Energy Efficiency Trends in Canada, 1990 to 2010). Natural Resources Canada works to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions by informing Canadians, businesses and government institutions about fuel-efficient vehicles and driving behaviours. We also provide tools, training, and technical expertise to commercial users seeking to green their fleets and operations.
To support innovative science and technology for the sustainable development and competitiveness of the transportation sector, NRCan provides funding for innovative research projects through our various funding programs. We support the development and commercialization of technologies and fuels that contribute to a more competitive transportation sector and a more sustainable energy mix for vehicles in Canada. This includes researching advanced vehicle technologies, such as battery electric vehicles, emission reduction technologies, and advanced fuels. The contribution NRCan makes to the improvement of the transportation sector demonstrates our commitment to a more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly transportation sector.
