We get questions
May 4, 2009
The Centre for Energy’s portal is loaded with factual and statistical information about Canada’s energy system. But we still get questions, like this one.
Q: How much biomass energy capacity does Canada have? Which provinces have the greatest biomass energy capacity?
A: According to the Canadian Industrial Energy End-use Data and Analysis Centre, Canada’s biomass energy capacity is 5,050 megawatts. Ontario has the greatest capacity with 2,020 megawatts (40 per cent); British Columbia is next with 1,600 megawatts (32 per cent) and New Brunswick is third with 437 megawatts (9 per cent). Wood waste from the lumber industry comprises most of Canada’s biomass.
