Coal Transition Underway

Transition to more gas and renewables

TransAlta’s transition from coal-fired generation to gas and renewables has been underway for many years in Alberta, and includes both plant closures and new technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

. . . Without driving up prices

New power generation will be needed in Alberta, requiring long-term commitments and billions of dollars in infrastructure investment. There are clear economic risks to consumers in accelerating the coal transition too quickly.
