dc.description.abstract Nova Scotia and the Federal Government have set low but achievable greenhouse gas targets, aimed at reducing our climate change burden while improving energy security in a globalizing economy. Can we decarbonize our economy and improve our technologic level? To answer this, I assessed our renewable resources and power plants, and in doing so reviewed practicalities of finite and renewable primary energy going forward. I collected data and created Nova Scotia’s Energy Map with the objective of improving Energy System Awareness in the region with an interactive online map. I evaluated and compared technology regimes based on: economics; operational risks; quality of environment, human, and animal health; along with social aspects of energy production and consumption. Finally with EnergyPLAN I analyzed and validated a near 100% renewable primary energy scenario to aid the understanding of regional decision makers that decarbonization is achievable and with proper implementation advantageous. en_CA
