A good look at renewables’ future in Canada.

It’s the Prairie Provinces that will lead Canada’s renewable energy capacity growth over the next three years, as per Canada Energy Regulator (CER).

CER’s recent report – Canada’s Renewable Power – offers a short-term outlook for renewable electricity capacity in each Canadian province and territory to 2023, with interactive visuals that compare regions and electricity sources across the country.

Highlights from the report include:

Canada is a world leader in renewable power and generates roughly two-thirds of its electricity from renewables (predominantly hydro), with demand expected to grow as Canada moves to a lower-carbon economy. CER anticipates that the speed of renewable power’s growth beyond 2023 will be affected by technological developments, consumer preferences, and government policies and programs.
