On September 23 & 24, 2010, 40-50 people representing a range of interests will gather in Red Deer to determine strategy and membership for an Alberta Green Energy Alliance. 

The prospect of a Green Energy Act to reduce Alberta's reliance on coal and better utilizing our renewable resources provides the foundation for launching the Alberta Green Energy Alliance.

Purpose

Develop core membership and preliminary strategy for the Alberta Green Energy Alliance.

The Alberta Green Energy Alliance would offer the provincial government the political license to create an Alberta Green Energy Act. The Act would help diversify and green Alberta's economy and would support individuals, communities and companies in generating electricity from low-impact, renewable sources.

This meeting will be a forum to discuss whether a Green Energy Act would include a general feed-in-tariff, a community feed-in-tariff, a renewable portfolio standard (RPS) or a combination of these.

Objectives

  • Gather representatives from key constituents which would advance an Alberta Green Energy Strategy
  • Explore key strategies for success employed in Ontario, Nova Scotia, and other jurisdictions which have established progressive renewable energy policies
  • Identify draft list of short term and long term policy goals with the highest possibility of implementation and impact in the Alberta political context
  • Develop preliminary strategy for the Alberta Green Energy Alliance including additional membership, preliminary communication structure, resource identification, etc.
