Canadian premiers form Atlantic Clean Energy Partnership

The premiers of four Canadian provinces on the Atlantic have established the Atlantic Clean Energy Partnership to drive forward the development of clean energy sector.

In a meeting held on April 12, 2017, the premiers have agreed to work together to realize the potential of clean growth, building on Atlantic Canada’s position as a clean energy hub, to support innovation and job creation in the transition to this new economy.

The focus of the Atlantic Clean Energy Partnership will be on identifying potential enhancements to electricity generation and transmission infrastructure, the promotion of energy efficiency, as well as the demonstration, deployment, adoption, and export of clean energy technologies.

The partnership will contribute to a more integrated and diverse energy distribution system that will support technological innovation, security and reliability of energy supply, and cost effectiveness, according to the Council of Atlantic Premiers.

Stephen McNeil, Premier of Nova Scotia, said: “We are committed to working together to ensure an affordable clean energy future, and to support innovation and job creation as we transition to a new, clean energy economy.”

Atlantic Clean Energy Partnership will see the provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador working together, along with the Government of Canada, to identify opportunities to improve the region’s energy sector while meeting provincial objectives under the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change.

The Council also said the premiers directed their energy ministers, working in collaboration with the region’s energy partners, to develop an action plan for the partnership by summer 2017.
