  • Why Alberta?

    – Business friendly environment – Thriving economy – An Innovative and diversified 

    economic base – Diverse population – Young population – Entrepreneurial spirit – Thriving small business sector – Strong labour market – Highly skilled labor force

    – Highly educated population – Advanced research facilities 

    (including  bioenergy) – Competitive taxes – Well developed infrastructure – Strategic location – Abundant agricultural 

    feedstocks – Abundant forestry feedstocks – Supportive policy environment 

    for bio‐innovation

    Policy‐ Specified Gas Emitters Regulation

    • In place since July 2007 • Facilities that emit >100,000 tonnes of GHG/year must reduce  emissions intensity by 12 %

    • Four compliance options: 1. Improve internal operations; 2. Purchase Alberta‐based offset credits; 3. Contribute to the Climate Change and Emissions 

    Management Fund; 4. Purchase or use Emission Performance Credits.

    Policy‐ Production Based Incentive • Alberta’s Bioenergy Producer Credit Program 

    provides incentives to producers of bioenergy in  Alberta for actual energy produced;  

    • Started in 2007 and has been extended to 2016;

    • Supports a wide variety of bioenergy products;

    • Province’s commitment to date is $490 million;

    • To date $44 million has been awarded to producers.
