The Renewable Moratorium Lifts and Intended Policy Changes

Readers may recall our previous update on Alberta’s renewable generation moratorium in which the Government of Alberta paused the approval of renewable generation and required the Alberta Utilities Commission to commence an inquiry regarding the development and impact of renewable generation in the province. The moratorium was lifted on February 29, 2024, and the Commission will now assess those applications that were affected by the pause on an individual basis to determine whether an immediate decision can be issued or if they require further processing. However, the Alberta Government has made known its intention to enact legislation that will affect renewable development in the province. Additionally, the Commission plans to initiate a stakeholder consultation regarding the application requirements for renewable projects.[1]
