Canada is a world leader in the production and use of energy from renewable resources, including solar, wind, hydro, biomass, and marine energy extraction.
Wind energy is poised to experience the highest growth rate within the sector. After adding 690MW of wind capacity in 2010, Canada ranks 9th in newly installed capacity and 9th in overall installed capacity worldwide. Wind energy production is expected to triple in the next five years. The total installed capacity in North America is expected to more than double to reach 94.2GW.
The federal government is committed to seeing 90 percent of Canada’s electricity generated by non-emitting sources by 2020.
