Alberta & Saskatchewan Renewable Energy Finance Summit

With plans to replace two thirds of coal-generated electricity with approximately 4,200 MW of renewables generation, Alberta represents a significant new market opportunity for renewables that will require C$30–C$50 billion of private investment.
