Webinar— Alberta Power Outlook by Similan Consulting

May 30, 2023, 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. (MT)

CanREA was pleased to host a special webinar on May 30, in which Similan Consulting presented their Alberta Power Outlook report. These findings are of interest to renewable energy companies who currently operate in Alberta or are exploring opportunities in this province. 

Similan Consulting Inc. is an Alberta-based consulting firm providing long-term power price forecasts, electricity portfolio advice, optimization and analytics services to load and generation clients. Similan’s Alberta power price forecasts are based on 40+ years of real-world experience in the Alberta market.

This webinar presentation includes both short-term market dynamics (how recent changes in market dynamics are impacting renewable-energy revenues) and a long-term price outlook (Similan’s view of the evolving supply mix and its impact on future renewables capture prices), as well as an examination of carbon policy in Alberta (the price impact of recent amendments to TIER and proposed Clean Electricity Regulations).

Similan’s Alberta forecasting report is available to CanREA members on the member-only website at 40% off (normally $10,000), as part of CanREA’s new Affinity Program.

There was also a 15-minute Q&A opportunity during the webinar.

A recording of this webinar is available on CanREA’s member-only website.
