Overview

Join Osler’s National Renewable Energy Group in our Toronto office for a timely discussion on Renewable Energy development in Alberta.

Project developers and investors in Alberta and Canada have been faced with significant changes in recent months – new provincial and federal governments with evolving energy policies; new climate change commitments; changing social opinions – all of which may present huge opportunities in the Alberta Renewable Energy space. One of the significant challenges developers and investors face is being able to wade through the uncertainty of a changing landscape in order to effectively capitalize on the opportunities presented, while leveraging any potential first-mover advantages.

This interactive discussion will include:

  • An overview of the Alberta Climate Leadership Plan and Canada’s COP21 Commitments: New opportunities for renewable project developers in Alberta
  • The Alberta Power Market
  • Lessons learned from Ontario Renewable Energy Development and key contrasts to Alberta
  • What you need to know: essential Alberta-specific considerations for Renewable Energy project development
  • 2016 Outlook: What to watch for in the coming months
