In a report, the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) says the development of renewable energy poses little threat to agriculture or the environment.

The Commission also maintains that there is no consensus on landscapes that should be protected for their scenic value.

The provincial government commissioned this report as part of its moratorium on approvals of renewable energy projects in Alberta.

Last month, the province ended this moratorium by imposing significant restrictions on renewable energy projects, including preventing their development in areas that include pristine landscapes.

The Smith government has expressed concern that wind turbines and solar panel fields could encroach on prime agricultural land.

The Commission's report indicates that even if renewable energy expands rapidly, it will occupy less than 1% of agricultural land in the province of x27;by 2041.

The Commission adds that the risks regarding the reclamation and decontamination of land occupied by the renewable energy industry are lower to those in other industries.

She concludes that there is no consensus on what constitutes a landscape immaculate, but adds that some form of consultation with local communities could be included in the application process.
