Environmental Products and Services

This emerging cluster has a history of development in southern Alberta with a focus on wind turbines, solar heating, geothermal technology and biofuels. While sustainable energy is part of the equation, solutions for other renewable and non-renewable resources like water, forest products, and metals are also required. Partnerships within this sector create opportunities to build on our leadership in providing solutions. Innovative businesses and world-class training and research are key strengths in this innovative cluster. The enhanced transmission capacity provided by recent investment into this infrastructure has created opportunities for new wind and solar farm ventures in southern Alberta.
