Winnipeg Free Press: Heat pump plan needs workable economics
Canada faces a difficult and painful task if we are to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as promised by our federal government.
Students Mauricio Benitez, Guneet Vats and Marceli Walczak studying sustainability economics at the I.H. Asper School of Business completed a novel evaluation, considering the future necessary lifespan for natural gas within Manitoba. While uncertain, they estimated upwards of 40 years. Over any wind-down period, though, adequate maintenance is necessary, especially leak prevention, meaning progressively climbing costs to support this infrastructure.
