Regional Electricity Cooperation and Strategic Infrastructure Initiative (RECSI)
The AESO has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to select a consultant to execute a Regional Electricity Cooperation and Strategic Infrastructure Initiative (RECSI) study. The AESO is acting on behalf of the RECSI project Steering and Technical Advisory Committees, which represent the four Western provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, and the Government of Canada represented by Natural Resources Canada. The main objective 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. Funding for this study is being provided by Natural Resource Canada's Energy Innovation Program. The program provides funding to advance clean energy innovation to promote sustainable economic growth to assist Canada's transition to a low-carbon economy.
