The inquiry has been separated into two modules (Module A and Module B) to explore the key issues identified in the Alberta government’s order-in-council. The AUC issued a notice on October 3, 2023, outlining the process for Module A.
Module A will explore the land impact issues identified in the Alberta government’s
order-in-council, including the role of municipal governments and more specifically the following:
Module B will consider the impact the increasing growth of renewables has to both generation supply mix and electricity system reliability.
The AUC provided several options for parties to participate in the inquiry (Proceeding 28501) and could choose their preferred means to have their submissions considered.
The AUC prepared a comment matrix, organized by key issue, which could be used as a template to assist parties who wished to prepare written submissions. The comment matrix is now closed.
Parties were able provide written submissions in their preferred format on the AUC’s eFiling System until November 22, 2023. All submissions, including completed comment matrices, are publicly available on the AUC’s eFiling System under Proceeding 28501. Instructions for how to log in and register an eFiling System account can be found in the AUC’s eFiling System basics brochure.
