2007 - Alberta Offset System - 1st Cycle Protocol Development
On May 17th & 18th, 2007, a stakeholder review session was held to assess a number of Draft Quantification Protocols.
The first series of Quantification Protocols in Alberta were initially developed from previous protocol work coordinated by federal-provincial and territorial governments from 2003 to 2006. Under that process, a significant amount of collaborative scientific and technical coordination and consensus was developed and available in the form of draft Technical Seed Documents (TSD) – which provided a solid technical and consensus-based set of documents from which Alberta could proceed with developing a series of protocols.
The first series of protocols underwent rigorous scientific technical and stakeholder review. Alberta Environment provided final approval on the following 15 Quantification Protocols to initiate various project types for use in the Alberta Offset System developed under the Alberta Specified Gas Emitters Regulation.
