BC Wind Energy Feasibility Study

Alissa Cullum~Chirssie Kwan~Kathleen Macdonald


Introduction
Introduction

Environmental Benefits of Wind Power:

●Does not produce hazardous wastes

●Lacks air and water emissions

●Does not exploit natural non-renewable resources

Economic Benefits:

●Rejuvenation on rural economies

●Royalties and lease payments to farmers and other land owners

●Reduction of ‘hidden’ costs


Introduction1
Introduction

●Wind Power Production Incentive (WPPI) aims to bring about creation of 4,000 MW of wind energy by 2010.

●Currently, Canada produces 570 MW of wind power.


Introduction2
Introduction

The Fortis Bank, the Petroleum Economist, and the World Energy Council:

“B.C.’s wind power is possibly the best in the world.”

●B.C.’s favourable characteristics:

●Good wind resources

●Sufficient power grid access

●High energy demand

●Federal and provincial incentives, such as the WWPI and B.C.Hydro’s

●Integrated Energy Plan

Results
Results

Optimal Area Identification, using zonal statistics.

The best area:

North half of BC

Best locations within this area:

North central BC.

Discussion

Issues

● Data

● Area Exclusion

● Factor Scoring

● Factor Weighting

● Zonal Statistics


In light of these issues how useful is our analysis?.......

● The models are consistent

● The methods of analysis can be used with different data

● New siting guidelines can be used to refine our multi-criteria models
