U.S. Department of Commerce | Renewable Energy Integration Trade Mission to Canada | Oct 30-Nov 2 | Toronto & Calgary

The U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration is organizing a Renewable Energy Integration Trade Mission to Toronto and Calgary October 30-November 2, 2017. Canada has undergone dramatic changes in its energy sector over the past few years, including the development of new renewable energy capacity alongside unconventional fossil fuel development. Although fossil fuels will most likely remain a part of Canada’s energy mix into the foreseeable future, some provinces are taking dramatic steps to reduce and eliminate coal-based energy (British Columbia and Alberta) while others eliminated it entirely (Ontario, Quebec). ITA (as outlined in its recent Top Markets Report) expects Canada to have new capacity through 2017 focused on wind, solar and hydropower development; with some optimism for near-term opportunities for Geothermal power in 2018. As such, over the next year Canada is predicted to account for nearly one-fourth of all U.S. exports in the Renewable Energy Sector, and that could increase dramatically if U.S. firms take advantage of the opportunities presenting themselves in Western Canada right now. Further, Canada’s proximity to the United States and the close commercial relationship enjoyed by many U.S. suppliers provides exporters a favorable environment to sell their products or services. Please note that this positive outlook is reflected in Canada ranking first on ITA’s list of top renewable energy export markets for the third year in a row.
