CanWEA: Speech from the Throne signals renewed awareness of significant potential of Alberta’s wind energy resources

The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) is pleased that the Speech from the Throne delivered yesterday signals the Government of Alberta’s commitment to developing an Alternative and Renewable Energy Framework.

A renewables framework would be a first for the province, and present opportunities to make Alberta a more competitive destination for wind energy investment as wind energy grows in Alberta and around the world. The new framework also would support improvements to the electricity system that help the province meet environmental and economic priorities.

“Wind energy is an established and growing player in the Alberta electricity market, providing clean and renewable electricity to complement conventional energy sources,” says CanWEA president Robert Hornung. “It is encouraging to hear of the importance that the Government of Alberta places on further diversifying the electricity grid, and the province’s immense, yet largely untapped, wind resources could play a key role.”

Alberta is well positioned to take advantage of its significant wind energy resource, given the province’s abundant skilled trades and the experience of independent power producers.

Mr. Hornung adds that CanWEA looks forward to being an active participant and playing a significant role as the renewables framework evolves and moves forward.

“We intend to remind Albertans how wind energy is poised and ready to provide substantial amounts of new clean electricity, contribute to rural economic development and significantly reduce GHG emissions across the broader electricity sector,” he says.
