With 21 new projects and total capacity of more than 700 MW on the way, wind power remains at the head of the game in Canada, and it is projected that wind will keep up the pace during 2017.

Wind continues to dominate the Canadian energy market when it comes to the installation of new types of electricity production. The North American country saw its wind capacity grow by 702 MW during 2016.

In fact, wind power has been the leading energy source since 2005. Over the past decade, wind has been the greatest new source of energy production. In total, the country's wind capacity comes to 11,898 GW, which is enough to cover six percent of Canada's electricity needs.
