To date, hundreds of U.S. corporations and institutions have signed off-site power purchase agreements with utility-scale wind and solar developers to the tune of at least 11 gigawatts. How do such non-utility procurements work in the Canadian context? Could Alberta’s coming wave of wind projects position the province as a hub for direct procurement? In this session you’ll learn what non-utility renewable-energy buyers look for, and how wind-energy industry leaders, power customers, policy makers, and NGOs can inspire and inform such direct procurements. Bring your tough questions!
