If the world’s governments are to deliver on the promise of the Paris Agreement and head off the worst impacts of climate change, they’ll need to decarbonize their electricity grids while electrifying transportation, buildings, and industry. This will in turn involve doubling, or even tripling, clean-power capacity. Meanwhile, both at home and abroad, developers, utilities, and researchers are busting myths, lowering barriers, identifying new opportunities, and moving ahead. What role will Canada’s wind-energy industry play in this transition? How will the grid evolve to accommodate the shift?
