CANADA IS A GLOBAL LEADER
Wind energy has been the largest source of new electricity generation in Canada for the past 11 years and Canada now has close to 12,000 MW of installed wind energy capacity. A lot of this growth has taken place in the last five years. Between 2012 and 2016, Canada’s installed wind energy capacity has grown annually by an average of 18 per cent, or 1,327 MW.
90% CARBON FREE BY 2030
The Federal Government is aiming for 90% of Canada’s electricity to be carbon free by 2030. Canada’s Federal Government continues to work towards a national climate framework by 2018.
7,000 MW NEW WIND ENERGY
Existing provincial energy strategies are targeting the installation of as much as 7,000 MW of new wind energy capacity by 2030 with procurement for 600 MW already underway. Additional energy strategy/policy announcements are expected this year.
$450 MILLION O&M BY 2020
Wind farm operations and maintenance market revenue opportunity is estimated to be $450 million by 2020.
