Federal government’s plan for net-zero electricity grid by 2035 may not be achievable: report

With carbon capture and storage playing a key role in greening Canada’s electricity grid, the federal government has proposed clean electricity regulations to get Canada’s electricity grid to net zero by 2035.

However, a new report from the Regina-based International CCUS Knowledge Centre urges the federal government to rethink the emissions intensity limits for carbon capture-abated power plants laid out in its draft clean electricity regulations.

The report notes that if federal clean electricity regulations are too stringent, it could scare companies away from investing in carbon capture altogether.
