The Nine-Point Bio-Energy Plan (2006) was the first step in creating the grants above, to encourage investment in Alberta's bioenergy market to create a long-term, sustainable industry. These grants were offered under the Energy Grants Regulation.

Alberta's 2010 Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) requires commercial fuel producers to blend renewable products into their fuels. The RFS requires an average of 5% renewable alcohol (ethanol) in gasoline and 2% renewable diesel in diesel fuel sold in Alberta.
