December 12, 2017 - Wind energy developers beware! A recently published study by University of Colorado Boulder researchers finds wind resources may decrease in many regions of the Northern Hemisphere in the next century, and could sharply increase in some regions down south.
December 8, 2017 — Silfab Solar and Morgan Solar Inc. have partnered to develop and produce a low-cost PV module designed for large commercial and utility-scale projects.  
December 1, 2017 — Emerson has launched automation technology for utilities and independent power producers who rely on renewable energy sources and serve the microgrid market.
November 30, 2017 — Schneider Electric Solar has extended its Conext SmartGen inverter power ratings for “greater flexibility and optimization” of small and large utility power plants.
November 13, 2017 — More solar panels will be installed across southwestern Novia Scotia through the Solar Electricity for Community Buildings Pilot Program.
August 30, 2017 - ENMAX and the Town of Cardston have completed two Net Zero solar projects, installing 500+ solar modules on the rooftops of Cardston’s Charlie Cheeseman Memorial Ice Arena and Civic Centre.
July 13, 2017 - SaskPower reports the competitive process for the next 200MW MW of utility-scale wind capacity is has moved to the RFP (request for proposal) phase.
June 21, 2017 - A University of Huddersfield researcher is developing new technologies that could enable clusters of houses to share their solar energy rather than simply export surplus electricity to the grid. Also, new systems for fault detection will enable homeowners to monitor and maintain the efficiency of their panels.
June 20, 2017 - To supply additional generation and make up for “lower-than-anticipated energy production at the existing wind farm”, NB Power and TransAlta have agreed to add 17.25MW of wind-generating capacity at the existing Kent Hills site.
June 14, 2017 - Land scarcity has severely limited Singapore’s adoption of solar power, says ABB, adding floating solar panels (a.k.a. floatovoltaics) could be over 10% more efficient than solar panels placed on land, and may be a viable alternative for the city-state, which is surrounded by water.
June 6, 2017 - Site cleanup has commenced at the site of a collapsed wind turbine located in Grand Etang, Inverness County, on Cape Breton Island.
June 5, 2017 - Brazeau County, Alta., and ENMAX announced the completion of three solar electricity projects, comprising over 900 solar modules atop the Lodgepole Fire Hall, Rocky Rapids Water Treatment Plant and the County Administration building.
May 17, 2017 - Saskatchewan’s first geothermal power project may be that much closer to a reality, thanks to as recent power purchase agreement signed by SaskPower and Deep Earth Energy Production Corp.
May 7, 2017 - New research from Oregon State University aims to make eagles less likely to collide with wind-turbine blades.
May 1, 2017 - NB Power’s deadline for project submissions under the Community Renewable Energy – Local Entities Opportunity has been extended to 3 p.m. on June 30, 2017. The original deadline was April 28. The Locally-Owned Renewable Energy Small Scale ProgramCommunity Renewable Energy – Local Entities Opportunity allows for municipalities, co-operatives and not-for profit organizations to integrate small-scale renewable energy projects onto the provincial power grid.
