Canada: A Global Wind Energy Leader
As Canada embraces electrification and decarbonization, many opportunities are emerging across the country, including 900 MW of new procurement opportunities in 2018:
- Canada’s electricity grid is already more than 80 per cent emissions-free – the cleanest in the G7. By further capitalizing on our wind, hydro and solar resources, we can aim to a reliable, near-zero emissions grid by 2050.
- Alberta is attracting billions of dollars in new investment in renewable energy. Its competitive electricity-supply auction made wind energy the lowest-cost option for new electricity in Canada. Now the province has announced plans for an additional 700 MW under a second and third round of procurement.
- Saskatchewan’s renewable energy strategy calls for renewable sources – including wind energy – to make up 50 per cent of the province’s generating capacity within 15 years. SaskPower has issued a request for proposal for up to 200 MW of wind energy.
- Ontario continues to lead Canada in installed wind energy capacity. It added 119 MW of new wind in 2017, bringing the province’s total installed capacity to 4,900 MW. Ontario’s updated Long-term Energy Plan, released in October 2017, shows a growing need for new and affordable emissions-free electricity beginning in the early 2020s.
- The Quebec and Atlantic regions are well positioned for export opportunities. Many States in the U.S. northeast have very ambitious renewable energy goals and face the retirement of aging generating facilities. Clean power imports from Canada are increasingly seen as a reliable and cost-effective solution. A wind-hydro bundled product represents a significant economic opportunity for exports to the U.S. In many markets, the combined bundle qualifies for lucrative renewable energy credits that are not available to hydro alone.
