IEA report warns oil and gas companies against banking on carbon capture

"...In a report released Thursday, the Paris-based IEA said oil and gas companies need to start “letting go of the illusion” that “implausibly large” amounts of carbon capture are the solution to the global climate crisis. Carbon capture and storage refers to the use of technology to sequester harmful greenhouse gas emissions from industrial processes and store them safely underground. In Canada, carbon capture and storage has become a key pillar of the oil and gas sector's decarbonization goals..."


Iceland town evacuates amid earthquakes, potential volcanic eruption

"...Since late October, the Reykjanes Peninsula has experienced an increase in volcanic and seismic activity. The Reykjanes region has seen several eruptions in unpopulated areas in recent years. The latest could begin on the seabed just southwest of Grindavik, the meteorological office said..."


Canada needs to dig deep to become a world leader in geothermal technology

"...Geothermal power taps thermal energy radiating from the Earth’s interior to the surface, conducted through subsurface rocks and fluids. We can access this heat by drilling into hot rock and channelling heat-bearing water back to the surface through a production well to generate electricity. Today, we can do this only where natural reservoirs of hot water lie close to the surface – generally less than five kilometres deep – but the true prize lies eight to 15 kilometres down in hard rock with supercritical temperatures, where there’s enough energy to potentially meet the world’s future electrical needs thousands of times over..."


Manitoba Premier Wab Kinew joins call for broader carbon tax relief in Halifax meetings

"...Manitoba Premier Wab Kinew was among those adding his voice to the call, saying, “We do think that there should be a similar consideration given to the people of Manitoba to get us through this period of economic pain. ”This comes after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a three-year pause on the tax for home heating oil, which is used in nearly one-third of all households in the Atlantic provinces, prompting many premiers to call the exemption unfair to their own jurisdictions. The Canadian Taxpayers' Federation says they were happy to see Kinew's support for the pause as the average family that uses natural gas will pay $300 toward the carbon tax this year..."


Energy Innovation Fair in Red Deer highlights latest advancements

"...“As we began to engage a lot of the stakeholders to this event in relation to geothermal, carbon capture, hydrogen, solar, energy efficiency and a bunch of other realms of clean tech, I realized I had no idea how much was going on in Central Alberta. It’s pretty diverse,” Thomas noted..."


In Iceland, UN deputy chief says all conflict – across regions and with nature – must end

"...Persevere for peaceAt the Forum, she also stressed that the rise of conflicts and unsettling developments of the last few days should not be a reason for the international community to give up but rather stepping up to restore peace.  Ms. Mohammed outlined that creating a peaceful future for all requires doubling down on sustainable development and reinvigorating multilateralism..."

Manitoba New Democrats promise to install geothermal systems in thousands of homes

"...The party says it would fully fund the conversion of 5,000 homes throughout the province to geothermal energy. NDP candidate Adrien Sala says it would reduce monthly energy bills for homeowners by 20 to 50 per cent. He says it would also reduce emissions and help grow the economy in Manitoba..."


Central Alberta’s economy could lose billions because of UCP moratorium on renewable energy: NDP

"...Two NDP MLAs came to Red Deer Tuesday to draw attention to lost local employment and investment opportunities because of the UCP government’s moratorium on renewable energy projects. Kyle Kasawski (on right), is Alberta NDP critic for Municipal Affairs, Mid-Sized Municipalities and Rural Alberta, and Nathan Ip, is the Alberta NDP critic for Job, Economy and Trade..."


Renewables pause in Alberta affecting 118 projects worth $33 billion, think tank says

"...A clean energy think tank says Alberta’s pause on approvals for new renewable energy projects affects 118 projects worth $33 billion. Alberta Premier Danielle Smith shares the government’s vision for the Alberta economy at a luncheon hosted by the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce in Edmonton on Thursday, July 20, 2023. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Jason Franson..."


Alberta renewable energy development pause affects $33B in investment, 24,000

"...Data source The Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) maintains a list of electricity generation projects formally within development on their website. Projects are categorized under several statuses and stages indicating how far along they are in the development process. Any projects that are in stage 5 or 6 have already received the necessary approvals from the Alberta Utility Commission (AUC) and are not affected by the moratorium..."
