Renewable Energy Plan Questionnaire

Developed Renewable Resources

Renewable energy is produced from natural processes that are replaced equal to, or faster than, the rate at which they are used. This includes: hydro, wind, solar, biomass, wave/tidal, and earth/geothermal. Through technology, renewable energy can be used to produce electricity, heat and fuels (e.g. hydrogen).

Currently, over 80 per cent of the province’s electricity is generated from renewable energy, and this will increase to 98 per cent with the in service of the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric project. This project will also result in approximately 3.5 terawatt hours of energy per year that is surplus to Newfoundland and Labrador’s current electricity needs.

Principles

Vision

The province’s future Renewable Energy Plan will include a vision describing the ideal state the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador is striving to achieve in the long-term for the residents of the province.
