Assessment of the B.C. Clean Energy Act

Publication - May 5, 2010 - By Matt Horne

The B.C. government introduced the Clean Energy Act (Bill 17) on April 28, 2010. The Act repackages elements of existing policy and introduces a number of changes (some minor and some significant) to the way decisions about electricity supply and demand will be made in British Columbia. The provincial energy objectives that underpin the Act are largely positive, but there are several that will be contentious and merit further debate.

The Pembina Institute has assessed the Act against a set of six recommendations for clean electricity development that we co-authored in December 2009.
