Innovation and application of energy-economy-emissions models

The goal for this project is to support the research of three master’s students whose work would help advance the methods for estimating – using energy-economy-emissions models – the likely emissions, economic and equity impacts of GHG-reducing policies by governments at three levels in Canada: federal, provincial-territorial, municipal. The modelling innovations and applications from these three interns will improve Canada’s ability to achieve its GHG commitments, notably its net-zero by 2050 target.

Ongoing Development of Energy-Economy Climate Policy Models

The overall objective for this project is to support the research of one master’s student who would help advance the methods for modelling energy-climate policies, a field in which EMRG in the School of Resource and Environmental Management at SFU is one of the leading research units in the country and in which Navius Research Incorporated is the leading Canadian consulting firm, providing support to governments and other stakeholders in the development and assessment of energy and climate policy.

The role of automobility engagement in consumer response to fully automated vehicles

This project’s objective is to help improve knowledge regarding consumer perspectives of conventional car mobility and transport innovations in Canada, with particular focus on fully automated vehicles (FAVs), or vehicles that can drive themselves without requiring a driver to be paying attention. Innovations can alter the transport sector’s environmental sustainability – for example, electric vehicles are key in lowering greenhouse gas emissions, while FAV impacts are uncertain.

Simulating consumer demand and automaker compliance under climate regulation: Developing the Automaker-consumer Model

The overall objective for this project is to support the research of one PhD student to advance the methods for modelling energy-climate policies, a field in which START in the School of Resource and Environmental Management at SFU is one of the leading research units in the country and in which Navius Research Incorporated is the leading Canadian consulting firm. The project focuses on developing a novel technology adoption model (AUM) and demonstrating its applicability by using it to model a Zero-Emissions Vehicle sales mandate in Canada.

Electric mobility in Canada: public discourse in British Columbia, Ontario, and Quebec

The overall objective for this project is to support the research of one master’s student who will help advance the research related to the social discourse of sustainable transportation and climate policy in Canada. In this field, START, in the School of Resource and Environmental Management at SFU, is one of the leading research teams in the country and Navius Research Incorporated is the leading Canadian consulting firm, providing support to governments and other stakeholders in the development and assessment of climate policy.
