CanWEA: New record for wind energy capacity installed in Canada
CTV News
The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) says 2014 was another record for the installation of wind energy capacity in the country. According to the group, this is the second consecutive year of record new capacity, with a total of 1,871 MW installed in five provinces. The most growth was reportedly in Ontario where 850 MW was installed. The addition brings the total installed wind energy capacity in Canada to nearly 9,700 MW, which the non-profit says could produce enough electricity to meet the needs of over three million average Canadian homes.

IEA says tide will turn for oil, but market is shifting
Energy Now
Oil prices may have further to fall and a rebound could take some time, despite increasing signs that the downtrend will end, possibly in the second half of this year as North American supply growth slows, the West’s energy watchdog said. Crude oil prices have fallen almost 60 per cent over the last six months with both of the world’s crude oil benchmarks now trading below $50 a barrel as supplies of high quality, light oil from the United States and Canada have overwhelmed demand at a time of lacklustre global economic growth.

Northern Ontario’s largest hydroelectric project in 50 years is now fully in service thanks to a unique partnership between the Moose Cree First Nation and Ontario Power Generation (OPG). Six new units on the Lower Mattagami River will add 438 MWs of greenhouse gas-free electricity – or enough capacity to meet nearly three times the peak demand of Thunder Bay.

"Sir Adam Beck 1 is at 20 per cent (capacity), Sir Adam Beck 2 is also less than capacity and our tunnel is at zero... not producing any power," Reg. Coun.
