Data for Landmark Study on Canada-Wide Wind Integration Study Now Available

Canada has high-quality wind resources in all provinces, with capacity factors ranging from 34 per cent in British Columbia to 40 per cent in Nova Scotia; Additional wind energy displaces more expensive natural gas and coal-fired generation, even without a carbon tax, reducing greenhouse gas emissions; The more fossil fuels are replaced, the more operational production costs go down, through reductions in fuel consumption costs (wind has no fuel cost), emission costs, and variable operations and maintenance cost. Wind energy has an avoided-cost value in the range of Cdn$40.5-43.4 per megawatt-hour based on the various scenarios studied; Higher wind penetration increases export opportunities which in turn increases export revenue. While inter-area transmission reinforcements are required to accommodate significant increases in the levels of wind generation, operating cost s...
