Alberta NDP rise to power raises hopes for renewable energy
The Globe and Mail
It is not quite euphoria, but the renewable energy industry is optimistic that Alberta will be more welcoming to alternative power projects under the New Democratic Party than it was when the Progressive Conservatives were in power. With Rachel Notley's left-of-centre party about to take office, there is hope that a provincial renewable energy policy will be put in place for the long term.

Emerald Awards: Chronicling an energy revolution in Alberta
Edmonton Journal
There's a green energy revolution happening in this country, and a lot of it is taking place in Alberta. David Dodge will be the first to admit it's not often the words "green energy" and "Alberta" are found in the same sentence. But the host and producer of Green Energy Futures, a multi-media storytelling project that's been running for three years, is working to change that.

Hope builds for alternative energy projects
Medicine Hat News
The winds of change which blew through the province and swept the NDP into power may also fill the sails of stalled alternative energy projects in southeast Alberta. The NaturEner Wild Rose 1 and 2 has received Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) approval for its 400 MW wind farm near the Cypress Hills. The GTE 13 MW photovoltaic solar farm outside of Brooks has also been approved by AUC.

Alberta equipment auctioneers are flooded with asset sales — and fetching record prices
Financial Post
Standing within earshot of the constant, almost machine-like droning of the auctioneer rattling off ever-higher bids, construction executive Frank Richardson can't believe how much money his equipment is fetching. Already, two of his Mack water trucks, used at construction projects across Alberta, sold for up to 20 per cent more than he had expected, as he watched from the sidelines of what would become a record-setting auction of industrial machinery.

Canada's wind industry sets records in 2014, but next 10 years will not be like the last 10
Last year was another record-setting year for Canada's wind energy industry. In 2014, the country installed a total of 1,871 MW of new wind energy capacity, topping 2013's high of just under 1600 MW. However, most of this growth was attributed to wind development in the east (Ontario had 999 MW and Quebec had 460 MW), with the western province of Alberta ranking in third with 350 MW.

We're leading the world in renewable energy. We can do more.
Canadians have much to be proud of. Think Olympic hockey dominance, or Colonel Chris Hadfield, or Banff National Park. We're problem-solvers too; think of our historic role as a peacekeeping nation, our work with our American neighbours to address acid rain. Not as well known — but equally deserving of attention — is our abundance of clean and renewable electricity, a widely recognized climate change solution. In much of the country, you can plug something into the wall secure in the knowledge that you won't be sending more greenhouse gas pollution into the sky.

Canadian inventor Eden Full's low-tech fix solves solar power's biggest problem
Huffington Post Canada
Eden Full holds as much promise and potential as her name implies, and her mission is to save our metaphorical garden. At just 23, she's already an accomplished inventor who has dramatically increased the effectiveness of solar panels, landing her on Forbes' 30 under 30: Energy list three years in a row. She was born to Chinese refugees from Vietnam in the oil-fuelled environs of Calgary, AB, and by the age of nine, she had built a solar-powered toy car.
