Saskatchewan to move to renewables, natural gas

Renewables and natural gas generation will meet most of an expected need for significant new electric capacity in Saskatchewan, Canada, according to the latest report from the National Energy Board (NEB).

In its ‘Canada Energy Future 2016: Provice and Territory Oulooks’, the NEB notes that “between now and 2040, Saskatchewan will require a large amount of new electric capacity to meet annual growing demand and replace coal-fired facilities. This will be met most by new renewable and natural gas capacity.”

The switch from old coal-fired power plants to natural gas and renewables comes despite the fact that Saskatchewan hosts the first commercial-scale carbon capture and storage retrofit of a coal-fired power plant at Boundary Dam.

The NEB is an independent federal regulator of several parts of Canada’s energy industry, including pipelines, energy development and trade.
