CanWEA Praises Alberta’s Decision To Return To ‘Energy-Only’ Market
August 1, 2019
The government of Alberta has decided to return to an “energy-only” market, which is expected to be a boon for the Canadian wind industry.
Reviewing which market-based system would be best for Albertans was a government commitment, and the decision came after stakeholders – including industry and consumers – expressed overwhelming support for maintaining Alberta’s energy-only market, rather than creating a complex capacity market, the government says. Feedback was received through consultations and written submissions.
