Canada's bubbling wind cauldron

The very different structures of Canada's provincial electricity markets are producing a variety of policies for easing wind power into mainstream electricity supply, from government sponsored tenders to sale of wind output directly into the wholesale market. What the provinces have in common is their increasing willingness to set targets for wind energy, supported by rules and regulations for reaching them. The

result is a boom year for Canadian wind power development -- and the likelihood of a 4000 MW market resulting from the new policies coming into play.
