1 Executive Summary

Energy is an essential part of every aspect of our lives. It has various forms and is used for several purposes. Fossil fuels were the dominant source of energy until a decade ago. However, their dominance has been on a decline as majority of the countries turn to more eco-friendly sources of energy — the renewable sources.

In 2009, global consumption of energy totaled 12.4 billion tons of oil equivalent (Btoe), growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.1 percent since 2000. During 2000–09, oil consumption grew the slowest at a CAGR of 1.1 percent, while natural gas and coal consumption grew at a CAGR of 2.5 percent and 3.8 percent respectively. During 2010–16, all the three primary energy sources are expected to witness a decline in their consumption rates.

On the other hand, consumption of clean energy sources such as nuclear and renewables have grown, although not at the pace of primary energy sources. During 2000–09, renewable energy consumption grew at a CAGR of 2 percent. However, with increasing demand for clean electricity and environmental concerns has put the pressure on countries globally to increase the focus on renewable energy. During 2010–16, renewable energy consumption is expected to outpace all traditional fuel sources to grow at a CAGR of 4.1 percent.

One of the most upcoming sources of renewable energy is wind energy. With the emergence of advanced technologies, the generation cost of wind energy has

fallen dramatically, allowing several countries across the world to embrace it as a primary source for electricity generation. During 2000–09, global wind energy market recorded an annual growth rate of 27.8 percent to reach 158.5 gigawatts (GW). And in the next five years, it is expected to reach 325 GW.

Canada has considerable natural resources and is one of the largest producers and exporters of energy in the world. During 2000–09, Canada‘s energy consumption grew at a CAGR of 1.3 percent to reach 319 Mtoe. This is expected to reach 349 Mtoe by 2016.

Despite Canada having large reserves of fossil fuels, it is heavily focusing on renewable sources of energy generation, and particularly wind and solar energy. This can be noticed from the fact that during 2000–09, Canada witnessed tremendous growth of approximately 42 percent in its renewable energy installed capacity to reach 3.4 GW. By 2016, this is expected to reach approximately 21 GW.

Majority of the growth in Canada‘s renewable energy installed capacity came from wind industry. During 2000–10, Canadian wind energy sector witnessed outstanding growth of 40 percent to reach 04 GW. By end of 2009, Canada stood at 11th position globally in terms of installed capacity and represented 2.1 percent of global installed capacity.

Provincially, Ontario, with 1,458 MW of wind capacity installed at the end of 2010, was the leading producer of wind power in the country, followed by Alberta

(803 MW) and Quebec (663 MW). Four of the top five wind farms in term of installed capacity are in Ontario.

The Canadian wind energy industry primarily consists of power generation companies. Its manufacturing industry is in a very nascent stage. There are approximately 430 companies active in Canada‘s wind energy sector of which only 16 percent are into manufacturing and primarily in to small wind manufacturing. Canadian firms rely heavily on imports for large wind turbines. In 2009, 86 percent of goods manufactured were exported. Such high percentage of exports amounted to only C$31 million highlighting the fact that most of the products exported are related to small wind energy. However, with the rapid growth of Canada‘s wind energy industry a growing number of manufacturing firms are entering into the market.

Some of the prominent power generation companies in Canada include TransAlta Corporation, Enbridge, and TransCanada Corporation. Whereas, in the manufacturing segment, Americas Wind Energy, Endurance Wind Power and Raum Energy are some of the key players.

Despite several challenges, with significant support from both federal and provincial governments in terms of promising initiatives and attractive incentives, Canadian wind energy industry is poised to grow in the future.
