Sustainable Energy Superpower

Published on May 21, 2014, Sustainable Energy Superpower highlights the challenges linked with large energy projects as well as initiatives that have the power to change the landscape of Canadian energy. 

Produced in partnership with the Canadian Academy of Engineering, Alberta Innovates and the Bowman Centre – Canada's largest clean-tech incubator, Sustainable Energy Superpower reached over 1.1 million Globe and Mail print readers on the day of publication.

This special feature was also the first to appear online in the brand new digital platform we created for The Globe and Mail in 2014.

Through a comprehensive one-month social media campaign that included dedicated influencer engagement efforts, we stimulated the sharing of the report’s content and generated over 19,000 social media impressions for the Bowman Centre, which previously had virtually no digital presence. 




Thank you for being so co-operative and such excellent partners in putting this very important topic before the larger audience. On behalf of the Bowman Centre and my colleagues, I look forward to exploring other initiatives with you in the near future.
— Walter Petryschuk, The Bowman Centre
