Environmental Activity and Sector Registry Group 3 Technical Discussion Papers

Regulation Number(s):
Instrument Type:
Bill or Act:
Green Energy Act
Summary of Proposal:
As part of the Ministry's ongoing work to implement a new environmental approvals program, additional activities and sectors are being evaluated for their potential inclusion on the EASR. This work involves comprehensive technical analysis and two periods of public consultation to ensure registry activities are developed in a transparent and science-based manner and that the resulting registry rules are protective of the environment.

To encourage localized generation from smaller, cleaner sources of electricity and community-based renewable energy facilities, the Ministry is proposing to allow specific small scale renewable energy projects to register on the EASR. The proposed EASR eligibility criteria for small scale renewable energy facilities are designed to eliminate potential impacts to the environment through facility design and siting restrictions.
