Canada Pushes Towards Renewables
Since the new Canadian Federal Government was elected in 2015, there has been a greater emphasis on the development of renewable energy throughout all of Canada. Especially the provinces Alberta and Saskatchewan are pushing renewables.
Alberta has committed to reducing emissions and increasing the use of renewable and alternative energy. The Renewable Electricity Program launched by the local government will add 5,000 megawatts of renewable energy capacity by 2030. This in return will help Alberta to reach its target of 30 percent of electricity generation from renewable energy by 2030.
By the same time, Saskatchewan aims to generate 50 percent of renewable electricity generation, of which 30 percent shall be generated by wind power. Therefore, roughly 1,600 megawatts of wind energy will be installed over the next years. Additionally, solar energy projects with a total capacity of 60 megawatts will be implemented in Saskatchewan by 2021.
ABO Wind Canada
ABO Wind opened a new office in Alberta in the fall of 2017. ABO Wind Canada mainly focuses on developing wind energy and photovoltaic projects in Alberta and Saskatchewan. The company is also open for project development in any other province to support the transition towards renewable energy in Canada.
Besides greenfield development, ABO Wind Canada also develops hybrid energy systems, community and commercial sized developments, off-grid solutions as well as research and demonstration projects.
ABO Wind is also looking to cooperate with other developers and open for partnerships. For example, ABO Wind formed a joint venture called "ARCA Renewables Inc." with a local partner in order to collectively develop and complete projects.
