Alberta's changing electricity system

Alberta's electricity generation mix moves towards increasing use of renewable energy backed up by reliable, lower-carbon natural gas.

Alberta is leading the way with a plan toward a lower-carbon future with a plan to eliminate coal-generated electricity by 2030. The province's electricity mix will shift to increasing use of renewable energy sources such as solar and wind, backed up by reliable, plentiful and relatively low-cost natural gas.
