Discussion Questions:

  1. What energy information are you most interested in? Is there additional information that you would like to see collected and/or made publicly available by the NEB? How should the NEB engage the public to help determine priorities related to energy information and dissemination?
  2. What format would be most useful to you in accessing and using energy information (e.g., raw statistics, graphs and infographics, short and frequent reports, longer detailed reports)?
  3. What are the other major data sources you rely on to meet your energy information data needs?
  4. Does Canada need energy information to be coordinated by one entity? If so, what entity would best serve in this role?
  5. Should the NEB have a role in GHG data collection given ECCC’s existing mandate to do this? If so, what should the NEB’s role be?
  6. What GHG data and analysis should the NEB publish regardless of who collects the data?

    Discussion Paper #3 answers to questions in: Energy Information, Reports, and Advise:1. The energy information I am interested in is: Natural Gas, Nuclear, and pipelines. All information, from the time of proponents project application submission, to final decision must be made aware to the public. Awareness campaigns or information sessions can be posted through social media, local television & APTN; in addition to disclosing the relevant information to reporters in potential affected area.2. The format I prefer is the longer detailed reports.3. Other major data resources used is internet and local news.4. There should be 2 entities coordinating energy information, remember the shared responsibility between Canada and the Indian people. 5. Data collection should be inserted into a master computer program controlled by the NEB. ECCCA and other entities must send their data to the master computer program, and the ECCCA or other departments/entities must "request" in writing the release of stored data for their information sessions or campaigns. NEB's role can ensure that information is properly disclosed to recognised groups, organizations, e.t.c. and keep record of who wants the information and for what reason.6. All primary quantative and qualitative data from proponent, government, and Indian should be published

    I am interested in data regarding the state of the pipelines; inspection results, plans for (and results of) maintenance and decommissioning, ongoing environmental impact reports, leak reports, and plans for/progress reports on the shift to renewables.The NEB should collaborate with ECCC to collect and publish GHG data and analysis. Each entity involved should collaborate on the collection, analysis and publication of data, and should provide the public with access to each other's data/publications.
