Reducing GHG emissions.
Funding a way forward.

Annual Reports

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.

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, according to a Conference Board of Canada analysis, Investing in GHG Emissions-Reduction Technology: Assessing the Impact.

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.

CFI Farming 4R Land Project Final Report
March 14, 2014

Farming 4R Land aims to build a unique network of Alberta farmers, agronomy experts, scientists, fertilizer and agri-business industry leaders, community leaders, and government officials. Farming 4R Land Phase I provided Alberta producers with science-based information and advice on how to use beneficial management practices under the 4R Nutrient Stewardship to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) through the use of the Nitrous Oxide Emissions Reduction Protocol (NERP) when they apply fertilizer or other crop nutrients on their fields. This report further explains the results of this project.
