We often forget when we're looking at energy systems that the economy is a subset of the environment and not the other way around. When we are just paying attention to the economic aspects and we disregard the environmental side of it, then we are doing ourselves a disservice.

(Alberta’s future energy system) will be a system that will be more democratic where there will be opportunities for groups of people, for cooperatives or for smaller organizations, to participate in the energy system, and where there will be significant reduction on the type of fuel that we are currently using.
