The Jurisdiction of Alberta's Energy and Utilities Board to Consider Broad Socio-Ecological Concerns Associated with Energy Projects

  • Shaun Fluker

Abstract

The Alberta Energy and Utilities Board is increasingly asked to consider the broad social, economic and environmental implications of energy exploration in Alberta. Tins article argues that s. 3 of the Energy Resources Conservation Act requires the AEUB to seriously consider these broad socio- ecological implications and challenges the Board's reluctance to undertake these considerations. article also highlights the fact that this reluctance the Board's narrow view of its s. 3 authority have yet to be assessed by the Alberta Court of Appeal.
