Canada Power Report Q1 2016: New research report available at Fast Market Research

Fast Market Research recommends "Canada Power Report Q1 2016" from Business Monitor International, now available

[USPRwire, Tue Jan 26 2016] The election of Justin Trudeau as Canada's prime m inister and the introduction of a strategy to curb carbon emissions in Alberta will strengthen Canada's shift away from coal-fired power and towards renewables and natural gas-fired power generation over the coming decade. Hydropower will remain the dominant technology in Canada's power mix through 2024, due to a vast pipeline of large-scale projects planned and under construction.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

In October 2015, TransAlta Corporation announced its decision to postpone the opening of its 856MW Sundance 7 power plant in Alberta from 2018 to 2020 or as late as 2022. The company attributed the decision to slowing demand and uncertainty over provincial environmental policies. We had not included this plant in our forecast as of last quarter, due to its preliminary stage of development, so the announcement did not impact our current forecast for gas-fired power.

In November 2015, the recently elected government of Alberta unveiled a plan to introduce a number of regulations discouraging coal-fired power generation and incentivising the deployment of renewable energy in the province. This development creates a downside risk to our outlook for decreasing coal-fired power generation in the country over the coming decade, which is currently informed with previous regulations for the sector.
