The results of a new Shell survey, “Future of Energy” conducted by Ipsos, which identifies key issues and challenges in meeting global energy needs, was released today at Shell’s Canadian Innovation Summit in Vancouver.

Among the key findings:

68 per cent of Canadians think that the future of energy is a very important issue, and this is higher among women and those over 40.

Environment is seen as the most important issue related to future energy needs (27 per cent), above climate change (20 per cent) and cost (20 per cent)

Canadians believe innovation, and collaboration between community, industry and government is the most important factor in building future energy solutions, but they also recognise they have a role to play in using less energy and by recycling.
