The research includes a quantitative data collection of existing projects in the province and a qualitative interview of key stakeholders to assess the opportunity and challenges for distributed generation development in Alberta. The results show that deregulation of Alberta’s electricity market has been a key driver for innovation both technologically and economically in the development of distributed generation projects.
