Alberta is one of the few jurisdictions in Canada with significant new generation requirements. However, with limited current opportunities for long term contracts to support new developments and  unless new facilities are built as dedicated self-supply (i.e. oil sands co-generation) or developed for strategic portfolio reasons, new projects will need to rely on merchant prices to provide sufficient returns and debt coverage. There is growing consensus in industry that the demand for new generation and pending changes to existing policies are converging to support significant generation investments in Alberta, including new renewables.
