Public Education Meeting — From Coal to Renewable Energy: Lessons Learned and Best Practices from Ontario

Feb 11 2013 - 9:00pm to 11:00pm

Speakers: Lois Corbett & Dr. Tim Weis 

  • 2-3pm: Public Education Meeting (Room 210)
  • 3-4pm: Discussion (Room 402) - limited to 20 participants, first-come, first-served 

On January 10, Ontario announced that by the end of this year, it will become the first jurisdiction in North America to shut down its coal fleet. This marks the conclusion of a successful transition in just over a decade – ahead of schedule – from relying on coal for 25 per cent of Ontario’s electricity supply to ending entirely its use of coal, while committing to cleaner electricity.

  • What were the factors that led the Ontario government to phase out coal?
  • What conditions facilitated the development of the Green Energy and Economy Act as a platform for the development of the renewable energy industry in Ontario?
  • What are the lessons learned from the Ontario experience, and how can these best practices be translated into the Alberta context?

Lois Corbett and Dr. Tim Weis will address these questions and provide an inspiring and instructive overview of the Ontario story, and how we in Alberta can benefit. Read more about Public Education Meeting — From Coal to Renewable Energy: Lessons Learned and Best Practices from Ontario

Bill 8: Government Listens with Selective Hearing

The recent announcement that the Government of Alberta will introduce Bill 8 (Electric Utilities Amendment Act, 2012) to effectively overturn amendments made through Bill 50 (Electric Statutes Amendment Act, 2009) is underwhelming to say the least.

Alberta Wilderness Association (AWA) applauds the bill that would require all future transmission infrastructure projects go through a full needs-assessment process by the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC), but we are acutely disappointed that Bill 8 does not address the significant projects approved under Bill 50.
