Renewable energy target raised to match corporate purchasing enthusiasm Business Renewables Centre-Canada sets new, ambitious goal

Blog Nov. 24, 2022- By Nagwan Al-Guneid
When the Business Renewables Centre-Canada was founded in 2019, we set what we thought was an ambitious goal of securing two gigawatts worth of corporate renewable energy deals by 2025. That’s enough energy to power 640,000 homes. Companies in Alberta put their backs into it, and in May 2022, they cleared the target – three years ahead of schedule. So this time we’ve set a target five times higher – 10 GW by 2030.
