Wind Energy Markets

Canada has a broad range of options for new electricity generation but few that match wind energy’s affordability, economic development potential, environmental sustainability, diversification, reliability and rate base value.

Wind energy will see strong and steady growth through 2016 across Canada. The wind energy industry is well positioned to build on this growth and provincial governments in the country’s four largest wind energy markets (BC, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec) all have long-term planning processes underway that will inform new electricity supply choices for the next decade.
