Brazeau County is located to the west of Drayton Valley, about 150 kilometers southwest of Edmonton, in the heart of oil and gas country. Its economic engine is oil and gas, forestry, agriculture and tourism.

We’ve got forestry and they are a significant contributor to jobs and we’ve got agriculture and tourism, but clearly it’s oil and gas. What we are trying to do is take a look at the different opportunities with alternative energy. Regardless of how efficient we are at producing our hydrocarbons the world is moving to alternative energy and we need to be part of that program,” say Guyon…
