Canada's Independent
Energy Modelling 

Reference Center 

Empowering Evidence-Based Energy Policymaking Through Convening, Expertise and Open-Source Tools

Our Strategic Priorities

The Energy Modelling Hub (EMH) is a national network of energy and electricity modellers, policymakers and other experts that was created to guide the transformation of our complex energy systems. We support and facilitate access to energy models and modellers from across Canada and associated open-source and FAIR – Findable Accessible Interoperable and Reusable - data. We also contribute to the development of independent modelling capacity, the establishment of relationships with other orders of government, and we provide resources to facilitate collaboration on net zero modelling and analysis.​

We focus on three strategic priorities:

1 - Convene and communicate

We mobilize, consolidate and disseminate knowledge for the benefits of the energy modelling community of users and modellers. We also collect and maintain a public repository of relevant ressources and models.

3- Facilitate access to models and data 

We support the development and maintenance of and access to a selection of quality open-source models and datasets. We advance FAIR data principles to enable the Canadian energy modelling community of practice. We also enable interconnection of models to obtain the most comprehensive, cross-sector, techno-economic analysis possible. 

2- Train and connect

We link modellers and policymakers across Canada to help bridge the gap between data and policy and we aim to increase model usage savviness through tooling, training and knowledge transfer.
