    Regional Electricity Cooperation and Strategic Infrastructure Initiative (RECSI)

    The Government of Canada is engaging with provinces and territories in a dialogue to help provinces reliant on fossil fuel-fired electricity generation transition to a generation portfolio mix which will help meet our national GHG emissions reductions target for 2030.

    Natural Resources Canada established a dialogue to identify promising electricity infrastructure projects to reduce GHG emissions called the Regional Electricity Cooperation and Strategic Infrastructure Initiative (RECSI)

    The main objective of this dialogue is to evaluate and rank the most promising electricity infrastructure projects in the Western provinces with the potential to assist Alberta and Saskatchewan transition to a sustainable non-emitting electricity generation portfolio. The scope of work can be viewed here
