Biogas Market Study – Understanding the Alberta Anaerobic Digestion Landscape
October 13, 2015

This market study was prepared for the Climate Change and Emissions Management (CCEMC) Corporation by TEC Edmonton to aid discussion, and open engagement opportunities about the progression of the biogas industry in Alberta with industry participants and government policy and regulation makers. The market study:

  • Highlights the biogas industry, focusing on anaerobic digestion
  • Outlines why anaerobic digestion is needed in Alberta
  • Explains how anaerobic digestion fits into the current regulatory framework in Alberta
  • Shows barriers in Alberta regarding the economic viability of anaerobic digestion

Investing in GHG Emissions-Reduction Technology: Assessing the Impact
March 31, 2015

The Conference Board of Canada released Investing in GHG Emissions-Reduction Technology: Assessing the Impact, in February 2015. According to this analysis, investments in Greenhouse Gases (GHG) emissions-reduction technology that were funded, in part, by the Climate Change and Emissions Management (CCEMC) Corporation from 2011 to 2016 will contribute more than $2.4 billion (2007 $) and add 15,017 person-years of full-time-equivalent employment to the Canadian economy.

2029 CCS Potential in the Oilsands – Pembina Institute
September 15, 2014

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) has been recognized as an important tool in stabilizing atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations at levels consistent with limiting projected temperature rises to 2°C by 2050. The oil sands are the country’s fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions and an international symbol for impacts to climate; they face increasing market access challenges in key export markets. There is a unique opportunity for reinvigorating our focus on CCS as one possible solution for the growing emissions from oil sands production, as both industry and government are gaining practical knowledge about supporting, implementing, and regulating CCS.

This document is an independent report prepared by the Pembina Institute exclusively as information for the Alberta Government, Alberta Innovates, Energy and Environmental Solutions, and Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation.
