2012/2013 Annual Report
2012/ 2013 Annual Report
In this operating year, the CCEMC funded Alberta’s renewable energy and energy efficiency projects to reduce a record amount of carbon dioxide emissions. Biological projects were also funded, rounding out our portfolio.
2011/2012 Annual Report
2011/ 2012 Annual Report
The 2011/2012 year for the CCEMC saw a new focus on climate change adaptation, funding three important initiatives. Biological methods to reduce carbon emissions were also a focus, as well as carbon capture projects and clean energy solutions. This operating year, we also funded small- and medium-sized enterprises with innovative clean energy solutions.
2010/2011 Annual Report
2010/ 2011 Annual Report
In the CCEMC’s 2010/2011 operating year, we focused on renewable energy funding and energy efficiency funding to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in Alberta. This annual report focuses on these clean energy technologies and the CCEMC’s role in clean energy funding.
2009/2010 Annual Report
2009/ 2010 Annual Report
In our first year of operations, we began funding clean-technology projects in the areas of renewable energy, energy efficiency, clean-energy production and carbon capture and storage. The 2009/2010 year of the Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation set the stage for our commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving our adaptability to climate change.

GE Ceramic Membranes Final Report
May 2, 2013
Membrane technologies offer the potential to reduce the cost of carbon capture by decreasing both the required capital investment and the parasitic energy loads needed to produce sequestration-grade carbon dioxide. This report further explains the concept behind the project and provides a summary of the GE Ceramic Membranes project funded by the Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation.
HTC Pure Energy Final Report
The expected cost to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from steam-assisted gravity drainage – an enhanced oil recovery method – operations are as high as $175 to $230 per tonne, far higher than the cost from any other source. HTC Pure Energy and Devon Energy recognized this technology gap acting as a barrier to implementing carbon capture technology from thermal in-situ oil sands operations, and sought out the Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation to fund a study to address this gap. This report further explains the concept behind the project and provides a summary of the HTC Pure Energy project funded by the CCEMC.
Gap Analysis of Biological Carbon Capture and Storage in Alberta
April 30, 2012
As society moves closer to reaching a critical threshold in climatic greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations, options for reducing GHG emissions are becoming particularly important. With the rapid expansion of the oil and gas sector in Alberta, there is an opportunity to shape the intensity and ecological impact of the growth. This report, commissioned by Alberta Innovates Bio-Solutions, on behalf of the Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation, provides an assessment of the priority gaps in biological carbon capture and storage opportunities in Alberta.
