Ontario Power Generation given approval to increase electricity rates
CTV News
Ontario Power Generation has been given approval by the province's energy regulator for a 10 per cent increase in the rate it is paid for electricity. The Ontario Energy Board says OPG had requested an increase of 23.4 per cent, which it says would have added $5.31 to the typical monthly residential hydro bill.

Premiers Wynne, Couillard set 7 criteria for Energy East
The Globe and Mail
TransCanada Corp. must consider the effect of the Energy East pipeline on global warming if it wants Ontario and Quebec to give the $12 billion project their blessing. That requirement was one of seven Premiers Kathleen Wynne and Philippe Couillard agreed to jointly impose in a meeting of their two cabinets in Toronto.

Alberta and Saskatchewan premiers respond to Ontario and Quebec conditions on Energy East pipeline
EnergyNow
The premiers of Canada’s two biggest oil-producing provinces said the escalating debate over the Energy East pipeline should not be turned into an inquiry into total oil field emissions. “Clearly, we’re talking about the emissions associated with carrying oil from this mode of transport,” Alberta Premier Jim Prentice said in an interview Monday. “We’re not talking about an inquiry about the oil sands or any other field where this oil would come from. “The market will carry this oil through to market, it will either go by pipeline or by rail or other modes of transport.”

Energy east pipeline: Quebec has had enough and takes control of the process
Canadian Energy Law
After months of very public wrangling culminating on November 8 with a full page ad taken by Quebec’s gas utility in the Globe and Mail opposing the Energy East Pipeline, followed a week later with the embarrassing leakage of TransCanada’s 2014 Quebec communication strategy, Quebec’s government has had enough and has taken control of the process in the province. The purpose is to dial down the rhetoric and provide a calmer and more structured environment within which to evaluate the pipeline.

Start-up company pitches tidal power for Nunavut
Nunatsiaq News
Iqaluit’s tides are close to the highest in Canada. And so is the cost of power in Nunavut. So, says Kirt Ejesiak, why not harness one extreme to offset the other? The Iqaluit entrepreneur, former public servant and one-time city councillor recently joined a start-up company, Apqak Renewable Energy Inc., to try and do just that.

Quebec-Ontario power-sharing shows energy synergy
Toronto Star
Quebec has put separatism on the backburner. Is Ontario ready to reciprocate — by renouncing its own costly history of electricity separatism? For decades, Ontario built political moats around its nuclear reactors — and raised the drawbridges to prevent the flow of cheaper hydroelectric power from our neighbouring province. But as Central Canada faces up to an era of economic upheaval and energy uncertainty, against a backdrop of newfound political stability, the calculus is changing.

Poll shows Canadians overwhelmingly support energy-from-waste
GlobeNewswire
The Canadian energy-from-waste (EFW) market has shown robust potential over the past eight (8) years, growing by 200 per cent, from just four (4) operating plants in 2006 to twelve (12) facilities in an advanced stage of approval or construction by summer 2014. Moreover, the trend toward EFW technologies is a national phenomenon, with a range of plants and equipment under consideration from Prince Edward Island to Vancouver Island. The trend continues independent of size, with investigations underway in communities as diverse as Port Hope, Ontario and Vancouver, British Columbia.

Canada refurbishes the old, U.S. brings in new nuclear
Power Engineering
While it might not be the "nuclear renaissance" envisioned a few years earlier, 2014 is seeing thousands of workers deployed in the Southeastern U.S. to build new reactors or, in one case, complete a nuclear unit where construction had been started and later abandoned years ago. Currently, there are two licensees with "combined" construction and operation licenses (COLs) from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). Both are using the AP1000 design from Westinghouse Electric to develop a total of four new units in Georgia and South Carolina, which is the same reactor design being installed at the Sanmen nuclear development in China. The reactor can generate more than 1,100 MW.

China's pollution and emissions solution: Export it
International Business Times
China thinks it has a plan to help meet its energy consumption cap goals and eventually reduce the pollution plaguing its largest cities: Export many of its coal-burning factories overseas. While that may be one country’s domestic solution, it could have profound environmental repercussions on the rest of the world. After years of international criticism of the immense greenhouse emissions that the most populous country produces, and domestic criticism of hazardous pollution, China’s State Council has begun revealing details of how they intend to achieve a coal consumption cap to 4.2 billion tons annually within the next seven years.
