Transmission Policy in AlbertaPembina Institute comments and recommendations

Publication - Nov. 30, 2023 - By Jason Wang, Karambir Singh

On October 23, 2023, the Ministry of Affordability and Utilities released "Transmission Policy Review: Delivering the Electricity of Tomorrow" (the Green Paper) to select electricity stakeholders via email and is seeking written comments on this paper. 

Expanding and enhancing Alberta's grid infrastructure is key to building a clean, affordable, and reliable electricity system. As Alberta conducts its transmission review, it must hold rapid decarbonization as a key principle and recognize the benefits of grid infrastructure for delivered electricity costs. Ignoring these benefits of a net-zero grid outcome would leave ratepayers – and potentially taxpayers – on the hook for a stranded grid and generation assets that may not be needed or economic as the grid transitions to net-zero.
