Published May 28, 2014 by Benjamin Thibault, James Glave

Within 20 years, Alberta has the potential to drastically reduce its over-reliance on fossil fuels for power generation and replace it with renewable energy sources such as wind, sun, biomass, hydro and geothermal energy, according to a new report from the Pembina Institute and Clean Energy Canada.
