Alberta and Ontario are teaming up to fight climate change. The premiers of each province have announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Alberta’s Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation and the Ontario Centres of Excellence. Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says the two organizations are already working together.
“For instance, Ontario-based Morgan Solar has jointly funded by the CCEMC and the OCE. The CCEMC’s $10 million commitment is helping build a 10 megawatt project in southern Alberta. The project is expected to come online in 2018 and will employ over 500 workers.”
The MOU commits to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, developing renewable energy and energy storage, and fostering new and innovative uses for carbon dioxide.
