Wind energy projects have the potential to affect birds adversely through direct fatalities, disturbance, and habitat loss. The purpose of this document is to outline the nature of information needed in an EA to identify, assess, monitor and mitigate the potential adverse effects of wind energy projects on birds, especially migratory birds and species at risk (SAR). This is an essential component of any EA of wind energy projects.
The Metal Mining Effluent Regulations under the Fisheries Act direct metal mines to conduct environmental effects monitoring (EEM) as a condition governing the authority to deposit effluent. This technical guidance document for EEM studies presents the most applicable generic designs currently available without being an exhaustive list of methodologies. This technical guidance document replaces the 2002 version.
In July 2009, the NEB published a report entitled 2009 Reference Case Scenario: Canadian Energy Demand and Supply to 2020. This report is an update and extension of the Reference Case analysis undertaken in the 2007 report entitled Canada’s Energy Future: Reference Case and Scenarios to 2030. These Reference Cases are baseline projections, which examine energy supply and demand trends in Canada and are based on a macroeconomic outlook, energy prices and government programs in place at the time of analysis.
This presentation reviews where Eastern Canadian crude oil basins are located, current investments and land sales, sites being explored and where recoverable resources lie, the state of present projects off the coasts of Newfoundland, and keys to accessing Arctic resources.
This presentation reviews a wide array of Energy Information Administration data for current and future oil and gas prices, while describing factors impacting energy costs and the interrelationships between these energy commodities.
The Board monitors energy markets, and provides its view of the reasonably foreseeable requirements for energy use in Canada having regard to trends in the discovery of oil and gas. The Board periodically publishes assessments of Canadian supply and demand of energy and natural gas markets in support of its ongoing market monitoring. These assessments address various aspects of energy markets in Canada. This Energy Market Assessment (EMA), Canada’s Energy Future: Energy Supply and Demand Projections to 2035, is one such assessment.
This website provides links to energy pricing information for crude oil and petroleum products, natural gas, natural gas liquids, and electricity. Overviews of these Canadian industry are provided for each energy source, as are descriptions of how Canadian markets function and current market conditions.
