What is the main power source for Canada?



  1. 0 Votes

    According to data from 2006, 32% of the energy consumed in Canada comesfrom oil, making oil the country’s single most important source of energy.  Natural gas and hydropower are the next most important energy sources, with each of these meeting about a quarter of Canada’s energy needs.  Coal provides about 10% of the energy used in Canada, nuclear power about 7%, and in 2006 renewable energy lagged in at 1% of the mix.  Canada is very energy-rich country, and also exports large amounts of fuel, mostly to the United States.  Canada is the US’s number one source of imported oil, and also a major natural gas supplier to the US.  Despite the fact that Canada has tremendous potential to develop wind, solar, and other renewable energy sources, the Canadian government has so far chosen to focus mainly on traditional fossil fuels.
