Renewable energy

ENGLISH | FRANÇAIS

At Enbridge, we take great pride in meeting our primary responsibility of safely and reliably delivering oil and natural gas to people across North America. The products we deliver are used to heat homes, power transportation systems, and provide fuel and feedstock for industries. At the same time, we recognize that our relationship with hydrocarbons comes with great responsibility. As society looks to greater use of green energy over the long term, we must lead the way now in supporting these naturally occurring sources that are continually replenished.

Since our initial investment in a wind farm in 2002, we've invested approximately $5.4 billion in wind, solar, geothermal, power transmission, waste heat recovery, and a host of other emerging technology projects. Together, these projects – either operating, planned or under construction – have the capacity to generate more than 3,000 megawatts (MW) gross of zero-emission energy (more than 2,200 MW net). Today, Enbridge is one of the largest renewable energy companies in Canada, and our portfolio of renewable energy projects is diversified and growing.

To date, we’ve invested in:

17 wind farms (more than 2,800 MW gross capacity, either in operation, planned or under construction);
Four solar energy operations (150 MW gross capacity);
Five waste heat recovery facilities (34 MW gross capacity);
geothermal project (23 MW capacity);
A hydroelectric facility (2 MW capacity).


‘The business case for renewables only gets stronger’
Our green energy investments: Good for the bottom line, good for the environment

Together, our renewable projects represent more than 3,000 MW (gross) of green power capacity. By 2018, that'll be enough to meet the electricity needs of 1,103,200 homesbased on gross generation figuresthrough projects either in operation, planned or under construction.
