solar energy in alberta: sunny days ahead  -  solar energy traffic lights
If Alberta even invests a portion of its brain, money, and time, turning the oil sands into a resource available to do the same with solar energy, we may reap something.
Alberta must have taken a lot of black eyes on its non-development approach.
The development of other largest natural resources may be a solution to these problems.
When you put the words "resource" and "Alberta" in the same sentence, you usually talk about resources that are drilled out of the ground, steamed out or dug out.
Oil and gas are king of Alberta, but a new report from the Solar Industry Association of Canada or Canada says Alberta has the best solar energy resources in Canada.
However, when you start comparing Alberta with Germany, the world's largest market for solar technology, it's time to start scratching your head.
This is where you play the sad long.
There are 2 sunshine Alberta.
3 MW solar installed capacity (Source).
Germany's solar capacity is about 30 gigawatts.
30 gigawatts equals 30,000 MW.
This means that Germany's solar capacity is 18,000 times that of Alberta.
However, when you compare Calgary's solar potential with that of Berlin, it's not even close.
Calgary has an annual PV Potential of 1292 KW kWh/kWh.
The potential of photovoltaic power generation in Berlin is 848 KW. (Source)
This means
Calgary's kilowatt solar system will be 52 more than one in Berlin.
In fact, Calgary has more solar potential than Rio and Rome.
This figure is even better for the Southern Alberta city of Lethbridge and the medical cap.
This may be a bit counter-
Intuitive, but solar panels work best in cold, sunny conditions (
Technical instructions here).
It turns out that sunny Alberta is sitting on another gold mine.
Now, the challenge of developing solar resources is very different from the game of oil and gas, but the number of solar energy is inevitable.
Gordon Howell is a professional engineer and a long-term
Solar energy advocates of the times
He's the first person in Alberta to have a grid.
Connecting the solar system.
He put it on his house as a trial in order to find the obstacle to implementing the roof
Top solar energy in Alberta.
He has been working in the solar industry since 1977 and has been involved in more than 100 solar projects.
When you start talking about how best to make the most of solar energy, Howell has already considered it.
With respect to the development of oil and gas, "We have put in place policies that facilitate it, open the door and reduce the barriers.
In fact, we have subsidized all the coal, oil, gas and asphalt industries to help them move on.
"Subsidies are often thrown out like the curse words of world budget hawks, but without subsidies we will never have a reliable national grid.
Without subsidies, we would not develop the oil sands, Alberta's current economic engine.
"So when I see how to successfully organize to help with the use of coal, oil, gas and asphalt, I say that's what we need for solar energy as well.
We need policies that promote this process, remove obstacles and lead.
We need small subsidies, incentives to help people and industry, as well as business places and municipalities.
"So far, the government of Alberta has little support for solar energy.
Alberta levy a $15/ton carbon tax on large emitters who fund energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction projects.
The Enmax generation selection project we introduced in episode 3 took advantage of some of these funds.
In addition, due to what their website calls a "huge interest", Alberta has closed applications for their ever-evolving solar pilot program.
It is a $500,000 grant program that provides part of the funding for 46 farmers to install 355 KW solar photovoltaic systems on their farms.
While Alberta's solar industry is currently small, Rob Haran, executive director of the Alberta Solar Energy Association, said it does support 86 small and medium-sized solar-related enterprises.
This is not a trivial figure, and when you start talking to people at the trade show site, these people are basically optimistic.
These people have been in a small industry with huge potential for the past decade or more, with little support from the government.
Randall Benson of Gridworks Energy Group has been supplying, designing and installing solar photovoltaic systems for the past 12 years.
"I have been optimistic for the past 12 years," Benson said . ".
"It will be huge.
We will also see more players in the game.
Not just small boutique players like me, but big players, manufacturers and installation companies that are much bigger than me.
When it happens, it will be a huge game changer.
There is speculation about the exact time when "it" happened, but there are also some encouraging signs.
John Gorman is the president of Canada.
He presented CanSIA's research on the quality of Alberta's solar energy resources to a packaged House at the Shaw Conference Center at the solar West seminar.
"We have seen a large number of grass-roots activities in municipalities, individuals, entrepreneurs and utilities construction projects.
We saw a real grassroots movement.
The news recently announced by Prime Minister Redford is that the province will launch a framework to guide all grass roots, and Albertans have demonstrated the entrepreneur's approach in almost everything they do, make Alberta a leader in the development of solar resources in Canada and globally.
"This grassroots movement has led to creative efforts such as led initiative, the power retailer, to pay more for exporting solar energy in Alberta.
Diana McQueen, Minister of Environment and Sustainable Resource Development at Redford, will deliver a keynote speech at the meeting.
Then we caught up with her.
"We know that solar energy in Alberta will play an important role as we move towards a renewable energy strategy," McQueen said . ".
"Some excitement.
It is known that renewable energy is an important part of our energy strategy.
Prime Minister Redford has also spoken about this, and we are concerned not only with the oil sands, but also with the potential of aostra ii. . . [but]
The potential of all forms of energy in the province-
They are excellent.
Alberta has a rich form of energy, and solar energy is undoubtedly playing a huge role for us . "
Aostra ii is the second iteration of a long dormant innovation and R & D project developed by former Prime Minister Peter Lougheed, which helps translate the oil sands into today's resources.
If Alberta even invests a portion of its brain, money, and time, turning the oil sands into a resource available to do the same with solar energy, we may reap something.
Alberta must have taken a lot of black eyes on its non-development approach.
The development of other largest natural resources may be a solution to these problems.
