Blog: Why a new system of industrial emissions management and standards makes sense for Alberta

The Alberta government recently announced a new step towards its Climate Leadership Plan goals in transitioning from the Specified Gas Emitters Regulation (SGER) for large emitters to the Carbon Competitiveness Incentive Regulation (CCIR). Electricity generation facilities will be subject to a “good-as-best gas” output-based allocation of 0.370 tonnes of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per megawatt hour. Wind generators, which produce no GHG emissions, will be eligible to create and sell credits to large emitters across the Alberta economy to help them comply with their emission reduction obligations when they are producing GHG emissions above their regulated allocations. Overall the CCIR sends a strong market signal that will accelerate Alberta’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emitting electricity generation and shift to zero-carbon-emitting wind energy and other renewab...
