RENEWABLE ENERGY CO-OP REVIEW:
SCAN OF MODELS & REGULATORY ISSUES.
Preliminary Research Findings, January 2012.

Prepared by: Judith Lipp (TREC Renewable Energy Co-operative), Émanuèle Lapierre-Fortin (Niska Co-operative) and J.J. McMurtry (York University).

Pat Conaty of the Finance Research Cluster recommends reading this paper. It provides a useful description of several co-operative ownership structures for electricity generating renewable energy co-operatives. The focus on ownership formats is complemented by a parallel introduction of their relationship to financing and regulatory issues in Ontario, Nova Scotia, the U.K. and Denmark. This article is of direct interest to the SIS Finance Research Cluster.
