Along with growing demands for electricity and to support efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, there has been an interest in nuclear power in many jurisdictions around the world.
In Alberta power generation options are proposed by the private sector in the province. Any nuclear power proposal would be considered on a case-by-case basis the same as other power generation proposals.
In 2008, the Nuclear Power Expert Panel report was submitted to government. ISBN-978-0-7785-6336-5
The Alberta nuclear consultation included a workbook survey open for public feedback, randomly enrolled discussion groups, stakeholder discussion groups, and a telephone survey. Participants included 4,832 individual Albertans and a broad range of stakeholder groups. Results from the consultation were compiled into a report released on December 14, 2009.
