Long known as the energy capital of Canada, Alberta has a propensity for problem solving that has made us a leader in the energy transition. Alberta is home to some of Canada’s best renewable resources – from wind and solar to bioenergy and geothermal – as well as the country’s first industrial hydrogen hub. In fact, tech giant Amazon – which is investing $4.3 billion here – also chose Alberta for its largest renewable energy project in Canada.
As the world’s population grows, our agriculture companies are pioneering new ways to increase yield and improve energy efficiency. In fact, forecasts show our agribusiness sector will invest $246 million in digital transformation by 2024. In healthcare, the new Calgary Cancer Centre will become the second-largest comprehensive cancer care and research centre in North America when completed this year. Alberta is also a hub for new technologies ranging from remotely piloted aircraft systems to Artificial Intelligence. Here, future-forward thinking and a can-do attitude are part of our DNA.
