According to a modeling analysis commissioned by the World Wildlife Fund-Canada (WWF-Canada) and the Pembina Institute, an electricity plan that emphasizes wind and other forms of renewable energy rather than coal and nuclear would be both beneficial and achievable for Ontario, Canada.

The study, conducted using a computer simulation of Ontario's electrical system, uses data from the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) - cross-referenced with comparable energy efficiency and renewable energy project performance in the U.S. and Europe.

Data showed that reducing unnecessary energy waste, switching to renewable energy and recycling waste heat into electricity would cost consumers less than building new nuclear plants, the organizations say. In addition, the green energy plan was shown to cut in half the greenhouse gases that would be emitted under the OPA plan over the next 20 years.

An executive summary of the study, along with technical reports, is available at renewableisdoable.ca
