Nova Scotia released its Climate Change Action Plan in January 2009. The plan focuses primarily on reductions of GHGs in the electricity sector. It acknowledges that Nova Scotia Power Incorporated accounts for 46% of the province's GHG emissions and proposes emission caps on the sector. The caps will take effect in 2010 and further reductions will be mandated in 2015 and 2020. The proposed cap for 2010 is 9.7 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent, down 0.45 million tons of CO2e from 2007 levels. Nova Scotia's plan focuses on conservation and renewable generation to allow the electricity sector to meet these caps. The Action Plan also recognizes the need for action in the other sectors over time.
