Report Description

Wind power installations in Canada have been experiencing exponential growth in recent years due to the favourable economic and operating environment in that country. The cumulative wind power installed capacity in Canada surpassed 4 GW by the end of 2010 as compared to around 1.8 GW in 2007. Canada added more than 960 MW of new wind power installed capacity in 2009, thereby accounting for almost one-third of global new capacity additions in 2009. Canada is emerging as the 8th largest wind power market in the world. 

According to the report “Canada Wind Power Market Opportunities 2016”, Canada is expected to lead the global wind power market in the coming 5 years, driven by government appetite for renewable energy. Canadian government‘s commitment to derive maximum of energy from renewable sources by 2020 will result in the required thrust towards the future growth of wind power market. In our opinion this decade will belong to Canadian wind power equipment manufacturers and wind farm developers, as they try to expand their network of operations beyond the domestic market. 
The research report “Canada Wind Power Market Opportunities 2016” discusses following aspect related to wind power market in Canada:
  • Installed capacity by Region, Province and wind farm developers.
  • Onshore & Offshore Wind Power Capacity Utilization.
  • Wind Power Reserves & Potential.
  • Overview of Wind Turbine Market.
  • Regulatory & Tariff Structure.
  • Anticipated future growth for Cumulative Installed Capacity.
Our report “Canada Wind Power Market Opportunities 2016” gives an unprejudiced overview on the Canadian wind power market like installation capacity by region and province, wind power capacity utilization, wind power resources and potential, wind power equipment market, current and anticipated future scenario of off shore wind power, regulatory landscape, tariff structure and competitive landscape. It will help readers to get familiar with current and expected future trends with respect to the Canadian Wind power market.
