  • OSEA: What the WTO’s Domestic Content Ruling Means for Ontario’s Renewable Energy Sector
    Authority s Feed In Tariff program is the domestic content requirements DCR stipulating up to 60 of a project must be sourced from within Ontario The impetus behind this was to stimulate the local economy and aid the establishment of Ontario as a manufacturing hub for renewable energy equipment The requirements achieved their intended goal attracting roughly 27B in investment and creating some 31 000 jobs The DCRs also drew the ire of the international community which deemed them to be protectionist and anti competitive thus violating free trade agreements The World Trade Organization originally petitioned by Japan and subsequently supported by other jurisdictions ultimately agreed The ruling leaves many questions for the sustainable energy sector including how the ruling will impact the ability of Ontario to attract foreign investment and stimulate job growth The information gathered during this discussion will be used by OSEA and its Manufacturing Leadership Policy Group to create recommendations to be presented to the Minister of Energy at a later date Have your say Some questions remain including What will the ruling mean for the nascent sustainable energy industry in the province Is this ruling positive or negative for the Sustainable energy sector Did the DCR do what it was supposed to do What other mechanisms could be used to drive manufacturing and assist in the development of an export market What role could municipalities play in driving manufacturing in Ontario What needs to happen to stabilize the industry What do other jurisdictions do to support the manufacturing sector Are there alternatives to DCR s available to Ontario in the procurement of Sustainable energy Are there ways around the WTO s ruling Given that DCRs have the potential to increase the cost of projects will the WTO ruling result in decreased project costs and accelerate
