Talk AER

We're listening!

Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) staff live and work in communities across Alberta, from Medicine Hat in the south to High Level in the north and numerous centres in between. AER staff know their neighbours, understand local issues, and can be counted on to respond to community concerns. Talk AER is just one more way that the AER connects with their community.

    ABR is the AER’s proposed new approach to developing and enhancing the rules and practices used to regulate energy development. This approach seeks to make geographically specific rules and practices that consider the unique environmental, energy resource, and community conditions in each area, collaborating with the people who live, work, and recreate in each area to develop the rules and practices.

    OneStop is a dual purpose tool. The public map viewer is available to everyone who can access the internet, and provides energy related maps of the province. There are many different data layers that you can turn on and off, including the status of reclamation certificate applications.

    This tool also allows industry to submit their applications. AER staff can now review reclamation certificate applications and make decisions with greater speed and accuracy. The new integrated system better equips the AER to process high volumes of applications going forward.

    Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan includes four key areas in which the Government of Alberta is moving forward:

    • Phasing out emissions from coal-generated electricity and developing more renewable energy
    • Implementing a new carbon price on greenhouse gas emissions
    • A legislated oil sands emission limit
    • Employing a new methane emission reduction plan

    As the single regulator for energy development in Alberta, the AER is working collaboratively to develop and implement an efficient and effective regulatory framework that achieves the Government of Alberta’s methane emissions reduction outcome of 45 per cent by 2025.
