Looking to the Future of Wind Energy
- Canada’s electricity grid is already more than 80 per cent emissions-free – the cleanest in the G7.
- Wind energy is the most cost-effective source for new electricity generation.
- Wind energy creates jobs and economic diversification in rural and Indigenous communities.
- Wind contributes to a reliable energy grid.
- Canada has the capacity to outperform its wind energy generation outlook.
- Residents, particularly in Alberta and Saskatchewan, are highly supportive of wind energy developments.
Canada’s Wind Market
- Canada is the 8th largest wind energy producer in the world.
- Total installed wind energy capacity in Canada is now 12,816 MW, enough to meet the needs of approximately 3.3 million homes.
- There are 299 wind farms, comprised of 6,596 turbines, operating across Canada.
- Wind energy production currently meets approximately 6 per cent of Canada’s electricity demand – and more than that in jurisdictions such as P.E.I. (28 per cent), Nova Scotia (12 per cent), Ontario (8 per cent), Alberta (7 per cent), and New Brunswick (7 per cent).
- More wind energy has been built in Canada over the last five years than any other form of electricity generation, with installed capacity growing by an average of 20 per cent per year for the past decade.
- The National Energy Board indicates wind energy is forecast to add approximately 510 MW of capacity annually going forward to 2040, accounting for 27 per cent of new electricity generation in Canada.
- In 2019, Canada expects to see approximately 1,000 MW of new wind energy projects commissioned including the projects contracted under Alberta’s first renewable energy procurement and projects currently under construction in Ontario and going online in Saskatchewan.
- Wind energy is the lowest-cost option for new electricity generation in Canada. And more good news – wind energy costs continue to fall, offering an attractive electricity source to provinces seeking to clean and diversify their electricity systems.
