Integrated Resource Plan

Passed in 2019
This plan was originally published in 2010 as a subset of the Integrated Energy Plan. A revised plan was published in October 2019. 

This document sets the government's strategy for its mining and energy sectors. It notably 1) acknowledges the pressure of coal mining on climate change and health, 2) envisions carbon capture and storage as a solution for reducing the sector's externalities, 3) examines a carbon budget approach to enable a low-carbon future, and 4) acknowledges that renewable energy sources are to be considered. The government also commits to a substantial increase in new capacity of wind and solar.
