The very geography of Canada has led to the Canadian energy industry’s expertise in the generation and transmission of electricity, in particular hydroelectric power. The paradox of Canada’s vast geography is that it poses an energy supply problem to the 32 million people scattered over 10Mkm2, while at the same time offering a solution to the energy demands of its inhabitants. One of the least densely populated countries in the world, with a rigorous climate and large distances between population centres, Canada has been graced with water, whether falling or running or still water, and thus water-based power ready to meet Canada’s relatively high per capita energy use.
