CER Market Snapshot: Canada’s power generation

Source and Description. Source: Statistics Canada: CANSIM 128-0014 Description: This line graph shows the annual amount of electricity generated in Canada using natural gas and coal from 1996 to 2015. The amount generated is measured in terawatt hours (TW.h) per year. Electricity generated from coal increased between 1996 and 2000, and then declined most years from 2000 to 2015.
