Video Explainer

Recommended: CanGeo’s ‘Moving Energy’ video

Smart, sassy ‘explainer’ video by Canadian Geographic shows how the grid and pipelines – but not catapulting batteries – get energy to your home.

A resource for all Canadians, Energy IQ is expanding its focus on teachers to providing energy information to all Canadian citizens. “Moving Energy” is the third in a series of  explainer videos, and provides an overview of how we get energy from where it’s made to where it’s needed to light and heat our homes and offices, make our cars and planes go, and keep our factories running.
