The Full Costs of Thermal Power Production in Eastern Canada

Full-cost accounting quantifies the environmental externalities associated with electricity generation based on modified life cycle analysis. The basic objective is to make explicit the magnitude of direct environmental costs borne by society from electricity generation, thereby promoting power sector investment decisions that are indeed least cost. This paper focuses on eastern Canada and was produced under the TERI-Canada Energy Efficiency Project undertaken with The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) in India.
