Renewable Electricity Program
The Renewable Electricity Program (REP) is intended to encourage the development of large-scale renewable electricity generation to support the Government of Alberta’s target of 30 per cent renewable electricity by 2030. The AESO is responsible for implementing and administering the program through a series of competitions that will incent the development of renewable electricity generation through the purchase of renewable attributes.
REP long-term plan
On February 26, 2019 the Government of Alberta announced a long-term plan to achieve the target of 30 per cent renewable electricity by 2030. As part of this plan, the AESO has been directed <link the word “directed” to Feb. 13 direction letter> to develop recommendations for REP Round 4 and incorporate any findings resulting from our evaluation of the Renewable Electricity Program. Please see the REP engagement page for more details.
REP Rounds 2 and 3
The AESO successfully ran two separate but parallel competitions in 2018. REP Rounds 2 and 3 built off the tremendous success of REP Round 1 in 2017. Strong competition from local and international investors demonstrates Alberta continues to attract significant interest in developing renewables projects at competitively low bid prices.
