      The National Energy Board’s (NEB) Energy Futures series explores how possible energy pathways might unfold for Canadians over the long term. The report employs economic and energy models to make projections based on a certain set of assumptions given what we know today about technology, energy and climate policies, human behavior, and the structure of the economy. Readers of this analysis should consider the projections as a baseline to support ongoing discussions of Canada’s energy future. This analysis is not a prediction of what will take place, nor does it aim to show how specific goals, such as Canada’s climate targets, will be achieved. Canada’s Energy Future 2018: Supply and Demand Projections to 2040 (EF2018) considers four different Cases: • The Reference Case is based on a current economic outlook, a moderate view of energy prices and technological improvements, and climate and energy policies announced at the time of analysis. • The High and Low Price Cases consider the impact of uncertain commodity prices on the Canadian energy system. • The Technology Case pushes past the policy and technology boundaries specific to the Reference Case and includes greater global climate policy action and low carbon technology adoption. It provides one potential view of what a faster transition enabled by stronger long-term carbon policy, faster uptake of technologies such as electric vehicles, and lower cost of renewable would mean for Canada’s energy future.
