Research at CABREE

Led by Dr. Andrew Leach and Dr. Tim Weis the Centre for Applied Business Research in Energy & the Environment conducts multi-disciplinary research on the complex questions around energy development in Canada. Current areas of focus include examining geographic diversity of Alberta’s wind energy fleet, emissions displacement in the Alberta electricity market resulting from solar and wind energy development as well as the evolution of wind farm layout across Canada.

The evolution in electricity markets brought on by new technology (wind, solar, batteries) and new regulations (GHG policy, renewable portfolio standards) will require an economic policy framework which complements this evolution and ensures that we do not suffer from unintended consequences. Our work focuses on Alberta's electricity grid and local/regional deployment of renewable energy sources and storage options and the policies which complement those technologies.
