Calgary has long been known as an energy city and today is being recognized as a leader in the global energy transition. Alberta is Canada’s largest oil and natural gas producer. The province also boasts some of Canada’s best wind, solar, bioenergy and geothermal resources. Digital transformation is quickly becoming the largest driver of new solutions and technology investments by energy companies. It is forecasted that Calgary’s energy sector will spend $1.9 billion on digital transformation from 2019 to 2022.

The Epicentre of Canada’s Energy Sector

Calgary is home to the majority of head offices of every major company throughout the energy-value chain. Key players in renewables and other companies disrupting the energy sector call Calgary home too.

Abundant Natural & Renewable Resources 

Alberta is home to roughly three-quarters of Canada’s crude oil and natural gas production and has the third largest crude oil reserves in the world. More than 35 per cent of Alberta’s land base has a wind resource considered viable for energy production, and Calgary is Canada’s sunniest major city, with 333 days of sunshine per year.   

The Province of Alberta has procured some of the cheapest wind power in Canada due to the abundance and quality of the renewable energy resource as well as the strong technical know-how by the province’s renewable energy companies. The largest solar farm in Canada is also under development and once built will power 100,000 homes with 400 MW of power from 1.5 million photovoltaic solar panels.
