  17. 17. Climate Leadership Plan (November 2015) Alberta released its  Climate Leadership  Plan focusing on  • Carbon Pricing  • Electricity  • Oil Sands  • Methane 
  18. 18. Climate Leadership Plan: Key Initiatives Implementing a new carbon price • places an economy‐wide price on greenhouse gas emissions • New approach will generate funding that will be fully recycled  back into the economy  Phasing out emissions from coal‐generated electricity • by 2030 and replacing that capacity with electricity produced by  renewable sources and natural gas
  19. 19. Climate Leadership Plan: Key Initiatives Legislated oil sands limit  • Limit of 100 megatonnes (Mt) emissions per year • Drives development and implementation of new technology Implementing a new methane emission reduction  strategy • the goal of reducing methane emissions by 45 per cent from  2014 levels by 2025
  20. 20. Bill 20 Climate Leadership Implementation Act  Proposed legislation that:  1. Provides authority to implement the carbon levy, outline  carbon price and create the administrative framework  (including consumer rebates and exemptions) 2. Proposes new Crown agency, called Energy Efficiency Alberta,  tasked with delivering energy efficiency and community energy  system programs 3. Enables government to use carbon revenue collected by the  CCEMF for a broader range of climate related purposes.
  21. 21. Climate Leadership Plan Budget 2016 Over next five years, carbon levy is expected to raise $9.6 billion,  all of which will be reinvested in the economy and rebated to  Albertans • $6.2 billion will help diversify our energy industry and create new  jobs:  • $3.4 billion for large scale renewable energy, bioenergy and  technology • $2.2 billion for green infrastructure like transit • $645 million for Energy Efficiency Alberta, a new provincial  agency that will support energy efficiency programs and services  for homes and businesses
  22. 22. Research  Priorities  2030 Innovation  Targets Impacts Albertans will benefit from new economic opportunities through value-add and advanced technologies Increased economic benefits to all Albertans from our natural resources Alberta will be globally recognized as a leader in environmental stewardship and action on climate change Healthy, empowered Albertans will contribute to the wellness of our province – creating conditions where others can prosper as well Linking Research Priorities, Outcomes,  2030 Innovation Targets, and Impacts Outcomes
