Episode #15 - "The Politics of Electrification in Canada"

Tuesday August 3rd, 2021 - 7:30PM EST - Registration Link Below

Our guest this month is Dr. Nathan Lemphers. Nathan will be presenting on the politics of electrification in Canada and will focus on talking about the regional politics of EVs - why there are not the same opportunities for and challenges to EV adoption in different parts of Canada. He will address ways to politically overcome some potential barriers to adoption.  Nathan will also bring in some interesting insights from California and Norway as well.

Nathan is a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Smart Prosperity Institute. His post-doctoral research examines the politics and policy of electric vehicles and the impact that this new technology will have on regional economies.

In 2019, Nathan was awarded his Doctorate from the University of Toronto s Department of Political Science. His doctoral research examined the climate politics of three major fossil fuel-exporting countries, Australia, Canada, and Norway.  Nathan has been a senior campaigner at Oil Change International, where he advocated for scenario reform at the International Energy Agency, and a senior policy analyst at the Pembina Institute, where he worked on oil sands and pipeline policy issues. He has co-chaired the University of Toronto s Responsible Investment Committee and sat on the Community of Interest Panel of the Mining Association of Canada s Towards Sustainable Mining program.

Nathan also holds a Masters of City Planning from MIT and a B.Sc. from the University of Alberta.
