Wind Power in Alberta

Wind power development in Alberta started in the early 1990s and has evolved slowly in recent decades. With potential for substantial wind energy production in Alberta and extensive wind farms throughout the central and eastern parts of the province, our research is focus on understanding resistance and opposition to wind power, especially amongst rural landowners. We are also interested in how wind farms can be designed to reduce resistance to this renewable energy source.

In these publications, we provide background and analysis to address these challenges:
