Abstract: Alberta lacks even basic legislation that would allow developers to obtain the permits and leases needed to develop the provinces substantial geothermal resources. Creating the requisite legislative pathway would help the province meet its goal to diversify its energy supply, while simultaneously bringing the province closer to achieving its GHG reduction targets. There are no jurisdictional barriers that would prevent the province from implementing the required legislation. In fact, much of the work could be accomplished through the passage of mere regulation.
