The challenge is to build a new energy system capable of meeting the energy needs of future generations with secure, sustainable and affordable energy at a much reduced environmental cost. Our industry will, and must, play a major role in shaping the next one hundred years.

Alberta’s prosperity is dependent on adapting its energy system to generate business opportunities and economic value. As rising global environmental pressures and societal expectations drive energy development towards a higher level of environmental performance, Alberta – and indeed Canada – has a tremendous opportunity to develop environmental technologies that can then be exported, along with cleaner oil and gas, to help the world manage carbon emissions.
