Green Power Programs in Canada — 2003

Published Sept. 1, 2004

By Johanne Whitmore, Matthew Bramley

This report provides a comprehensive survey of government policies and private sector initiatives to support and market green power (low-impact renewable electricity) that were active in Canada by the end of 2003. For each program, the report presents a brief description of the initiative, calculates its contribution to each jurisdiction's electricity production, and estimates the resulting reductions in emissions of greenhouse gases and pollutants that cause smog and acid rain. The report also reviews green power certification systems, and includes an update on new green power programs that have emerged in 2004.
