If the fixed income analysts at BMO Capital Markets have got it right, investors can expect another crop of issues by companies whose business is renewable energy, a move, they suggest will generate ‘a gust of income for your portfolio’…

Duane Tilden‘s insight:

In his view, the level of issuance in 2012 “will easily be surpassed this year,” he wrote in a 24-page report.

Laing makes that argument on the basis that across the land, there are more than 8,500 megawatts in projects at various stages of development “stemming from previous calls for green power.”

Most of those projects are based in B.C., Ontario and Quebec. According to his report, Canada’s wind energy capacity stood at 6,000MW at the end of 2012, up from 140MW in 2000.

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of


    • Thanks for your comment. I agree that this is a complicated topic. In the past, financing of projects in the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency sector’s has been difficult for many reasons. Finance is essential to construction of large projects. Investors need returns, workers need jobs and outdated infrastructure needs to get replaced.


  2. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for rookie blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.


    • Hi Claude,
      Thanks for your kind words of recommendation. To be honest I have only been blogging on Energy and Social Media for close to a year, however, I have had great support and guidance from some of the best in the business, and put in the time in research and marketing. There is so much more for me to learn and get done.

      A few quick ideas that worked well for me:
      1. Get a WordPress account, this will cost some money and there is a learning curve… I consider my self a beginner WordPress curator and have much more to work on with the blog look, presentation, layout, etc.
      2. Get a Curation tool, I use Scoop-it,
      3. Start a blog on a topic you know well or are interested and passionate about,
      4. Use automated web searches on keywords for worldwide news on your topics. One tool I use for this is Google Alerts, which give me daily feeds.
      5. Get RSS feeds (seems that this is a decent feature which I plan on including in my own blog).
      6. Edit articles and include tags for easy meta-searches. This allows you to be found as well as find others.
      7. Cross-pollinate your blog on social media networks. Be active and engage with others. I can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Linked In. I use my real name in all cases, so there is no confusion with anyone else, my name is my brand.

      I am sure there will be more to add in the future, this is just a beginning summary, far from complete with more to come… Cheers!


  3. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s
    both equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.

    I’m very happy I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.


  4. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it is time
    to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I want to suggest you few interesting things or advice.
    Maybe you could write next articles referring to this
    article. I wish to read more things about it!
