Working together for a sustainable future

Energy warms our homes, powers our vehicles and helps produce and move the goods we use every day. As our climate changes, energy systems are evolving, working together to meet our future energy needs sustainably.

For us, innovation comes naturally. We’re collaborating to advance new green technologies to fuel transportation, heat buildings and power industry. We’re introducing new renewable fuels and finding practical ways to use less energy.


The path to net zero

The most cost-effective and resilient path to net-zero*Net zero means reducing GHG emissions to as close to zero as possible, then balancing any remaining emissions with an equivalent amount of carbon removal through environmental actions and innovative technology.

emissions requires electric and gas systems to work together. This includes increased electrification of building heat, personal and light-duty vehicles; greening the gas supply with renewable natural gas and hydrogen; and powering industry with hydrogen and blended natural gas, combined with carbon capture.

This collaborative approach will:

  • Reliably meet our energy needs, even on the coldest days.
  • Meet the energy needs of industries like concrete and steel production, and heavy transportation that can’t be practically electrified.
  • Minimize costs for energy consumers.
  • Provide consumers flexibility to make choices on their path to net zero.

Study: Actions and recommendations for Ontario

Enbridge Gas engaged Guidehouse to explore two pathways to net zero. Findings reveal that, compared to an electrification pathway, a diversified pathway is the most practical way to achieve net zero while being more reliable, resilient and affordable.
