A new report on renewable energy by Clean Energy Canada, titled “The Transition Takes Hold”, expects that by 2025 generation costs for large-scale solar power plants will fall by 57%.

In the US, the renewable energy sector experienced a fall in total investment in 2016 as opposed to 2015, but since the cost of green power has lowered the electricity capacity remained almost unchanged. According to Merran Smith, executive director of Clean Energy Canada, there is a business opportunity for Canada to sell renewable energy to the rest of the world. In fact there are many companies eager to sell their solutions and help other countries with the clean energy transition.
