This video presents “What kinds of energy are used in Ontario?”
The ECO (Environmental Commissioner of Ontario), Gord Miller, describes a chart from his report, Annual Energy Conservation Progress Report, Rethinking Energy Conservation in Ontario, that outlines different energy sources used by different sectors in Ontario, Canada.
Electricity makes up less than a quarter of our energy demand.
Ministry of Energy staff will review these survey results, which will help to inform the drafting of the final LTEP.
However, this survey is not considered a formal submission. If you want to submit your thoughts formally to the LTEP review team, please do so through the Environmental Registry.
In 2010, Ontario released its first Long-Term Energy Plan that set out a clear, comprehensive direction for the province’s energy future.
It considered all aspects of Ontario’s electricity system, including conservation, generation, transmission, distribution and emerging technologies such as energy storage, as well as Aboriginal community participation in the energy sector.
The plan set out the investments required to modernize and upgrade our electricity system, and included price projections for residential and industrial customers.
A three-year review of the Long-Term Energy Plan was contemplated when it was announced in 2010.
This guide provides some info on the current status of the electricity system.
Also, it identifies commitments made that are still shaping the sector, and characteristics of the different energy sources.
All comments received prior to September 09, 2013 will be considered as part of the decision-making process by the Ministry of Energy if they are submitted in writing or electronically using the form provided in this notice and reference EBR Registry number 011-9490.

This video presents “Ontario – Ministry of Energy.”
“The Ministry of Energy works with many partners inside and outside of government to develop the electricity generation, transmission and other energy-related facilities that help power our economy—and to ensure that Ontario remains one of the best places in the world in which to live, work, invest and raise a family.
A top priority is ensuring that Ontario’s electricity needs are met in a sustainable manner.
Developing renewable energy sources and fostering a conservation-oriented culture are cornerstones of Ontario’s balanced plan to provide clean, and reliable energy—while encouraging the development of a clean energy economy for our future.“
Provincial Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli announced that Ontario will make conservation a top priority in energy planning.
City of Toronto Recent Update: City services resuming following yesterday’s intense rainfall
City crews and the City’s Emergency Operations Centre have been working closely throughout the night with Toronto Hydro and the TTC to manage impacts to residents and restore services to residents as quickly as possible after yesterday’s intense rainfall.
Environment Canada advises that all weather warnings across the Toronto area have ended.
Toronto Hydro advises that as of 8 a.m. today, July 9, approximately 20,000 customers still remain without power in the areas bounded by Dundas Street South to Valermo Drive; the West Mall East to Stephen Drive, and Ormskirk Avenue south to the Queensway; South Kingsway East to Windermere Avenue.
The main issue relates to a lack of supply from a Hydro One station in Toronto due to flooding.
Hydro One has made significant progress throughout the night to restore power to approximately 90 per cent of customers that were impacted by power interruptions caused by flooding at its Richview and Manby Transmission Stations (TS).
This video presents Transit City Light Rail Transit (LRT), a plan of both Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) and the City of Toronto to expand rapid transit services into neighbourhoods across Toronto in Ontario, Canada:
“Earlier today the Metrolinx Board recommended a plan to get shovels in the ground on four new public transit projects in Toronto. This plan would see us deliver on all four projects by 2020, with Eglinton Crosstown and Scarborough RT moving forward later this year.
As I have stated before, our government respects the will of the city’s democratically elected councillors. This plan reflects input from the City of Toronto based on the position adopted by Council. In terms of next steps, the plan will now be brought forward to Cabinet.
The McGuinty government has made a firm, $8.4 billion commitment to these projects. Our focus is on getting shovels in the ground and delivering much-needed public transit projects for the residents of Toronto.”
Transportation Minister Bob Chiarelli
Then, at the Toronto Transit Commission Meeting on May 1, 2012, Commissioners received a detailed presentation from TTC staff on the four Light Rail Transit (LRT) projects for Toronto, resulting in the following TTC actions:
