Electricity is fundamental to shelter and light, health care, food and water supply, communications, manufacturing, banking, travel and defence. Canada ranks seventh worldwide in installed generation capacity and third in electricity exports. Total utility revenue in Canada is about $25 billion per year and the electric power industry contributes about 3% to the GDP. Major hurdles to growth include high capital costs, long lead times, and public opposition to new facilities.
