Canada is one of the world’s five largest energy producers

Canada is a net exporter of most energy commodities and is an especially significant producer of conventional and unconventional oil, natural gas, and hydroelectricity. It stands out as the largest foreign supplier of energy to the United States, its southern neighbor and one of the world’s largest consumers of energy. Just as the United States depends on Canada for much of its energy needs, so is Canada profoundly dependent on the United States as an export market.

Canada’s large territory is endowed with an exceptionally rich and varied set of natural resources, which enables it to rank among the five largest energy producers in the world. The Canadian economy is relatively energy-intensive when compared to other industrialized countries, and is largely fueled by petroleum for transportation purposes, natural gas, and hydroelectricity.

Powering Canada’s Future

Across Canada, electricity generated from wind is already powering over 1.5 million homes and businesses in a clean, reliable and efficient manner. With Canada’s unparalleled wind resource, there are still opportunities to do more to maximize the economic, industrial development, and environmental benefits associated with wind energy for Canada.
The wind energy industry installed 936 MW in 2012 with new projects commissioned in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Manitoba, the Northwest Territories, Quebec and Nova Scotia. Canada will see an average of 1,500 MW of new projects commissioned annually over the next four years Creating 68,000 additional person-years of employment and attracting $15 billion in new investment.
Wind energy is one of the fastest growing major sources of new electricity around the world. In 2012, global wind energy capacity grew by 19 per cent, with the wind industry installing a record level of 44,711 MW of new clean, reliable wind power. Today, there are over 150,000 wind turbines operating around the world in over 90 countries.
