Canada and Germany have entered into an energy partnership, establishing a formal collaboration in a broad range of shared energy priorities aimed at facilitating private sector engagement, and trade and investment opportunities.
Announced on the margins of the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue, the partnership positions Canada as a clean energy partner of choice for Germany, notably for hydrogen, critical minerals and liquefied natural gas.
Canada and Germany will establish a High-Level Steering Committee, co-chaired at the Deputy Minister–level, to foster the energy transformation through exchanges on policy, best practices and technologies as well as through cooperative activities and projects focused on:
- energy policy, planning and regulations;
- resilient electricity systems that can integrate high levels of renewables;
- energy efficiency;
- sector coupling and low-carbon fuels; and
- innovation and applied research.
- The partnership underscores the importance of strategic partnerships between the two countries, including Canada’s commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
