Improving the flexibility of the Clean Electricity Regulations

Pembina Institute comments and recommendations

The parameters of the updated Clean Electricity Regulations (CER) provide necessary flexibility, balancing environmental and affordablity objectives. Given the environmental and health consequences of emitting energy sources, it is imperative that these regulations are implemented urgently.

We provide several recommendations regarding the proposed changes to the unit-specifc annual emissions limit and end of prescribed life parameters, as well as the inclusion of net-exporting cogeneration facilities. This submission also outlines additional complementary actions that should be implemented to ensure a credible path to net-zero.
