Brenda Heelan Powell, ELC Counsel, participates in AER’s Best-in-Class Regulator Initiative
Brenda Heelan Powell, Staff Counsel at the Environmental Law Center (ELC), has been selected to participate in the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER)’s Best-in-Class Regulator Initiative. This initiative is being conducted by the University of Pennsylvania through its Penn Program on Regulation, which will develop the tools and framework necessary for the AER to measure and track its performance against best-in-class regulator attributes globally. As the single regulator for Alberta’s energy industry, the AER plays a central role in the protection of Alberta’s natural resources and environment. In order to be a best-in-class regulator, the AER must conduct itself in a transparent and accountable manner. As well, the AER should operate within a regulatory and policy framework that achieves overall sustainability and sets clear and measurable environmental outcomes.
