The National Energy Board says a building spree in non-hydroelectric renewable power projects between 2005 and 2015 took its share of overall capacity in Canada from two per cent to 11 per cent.
Non-hydro renewable power such as wind, solar and biomass grew more than sixfold over that same time frame, rising from 2,360 megawatts to 15,600 MW.
NEB chief economist Shelley Milutinovic says Canada is now the fourth largest generator in the world of environmentally friendly power from sources including wind, solar, biomass and hydroelectric plants.
Manitoba Hydro's board wants to explain to the public in person about the results of its recently completed review of the utility.
A recent review of Hydro found the Crown corporation's debt is expected to nearly double in the next three or four years to $25 billion, thanks in part to the questionable decisions to build Bipole III down the east side of Lake Winnipeg and move forward with the Keeyask dam. The mounting debt is expected to cause sizeable hikes in customer bills in the months and years to come.

Sweet, hoppy, floral, or elegant — there's a lot of terms to describe a delicious craft beer. But some critics have added "extremely wasteful" to the list.
It can take up to seven litres of water to produce just one litre of craft beer. And if the heavy water usage wasn't enough, there's also a tremendous amount of wastewater produced by the process.
But a new development from the University of Colorado in Boulder has opened up a new door for what can be done with the waste material by keeping it out of the sewers — and turning it into energy.
