The Government of Alberta has issued a Bulletin discussing its Geothermal Resource Tenure Regulation, which complements the recently proclaimed Geothermal Resources Development Act (GRDA). Alberta Energy is also now accepting applications from companies interested in exploring and developing geothermal resources.
The Electronic Transfer System (ETS) for submitting applications for geothermal leases is still under development.
CanGEA was a stakeholder throughout the development of GRDA and its regulations for the Alberta Government and Alberta Energy Regulator (AER). More information on our policy comments provided to the Alberta Government and AER, along with other policy submissions, can be accessed by CanGEA’s corporate members. Click here to become a member.
