A Canadian province has announced its plans to tackle climate change.

The ‘Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan’ stated two thirds of the electricity generated from coal will be replaced by renewables by 2030.

Green energy sources will also account up to 30% of the region’s energy production during the same period.

Alberta will also set a carbon pricing and an emissions limit for oil sands.

It also plans to improve energy efficiency, support green technologies and reduce methane.

Rachel Notley, Premier of Alberta said: “Responding to climate change is about doing what’s right for future generations of Albertans – protecting our jobs, health and the environment. It will help us access new markets for our energy products and diversify our economy with renewable energy and energy efficiency technology.”
