SaskPower’s goal of doubling the percentage of renewable energy in the province by 2030 is achievable with the possibility of other positive spinoffs. The Vice President of Science and Research with the World Wildlife Fund in Canada also feels the technology available can be used in an ecologically sound way. James Snider believes renewable energy can be the wave of the future in any community with health benefits for more remote places that rely on diesel. Snider says wind and solar are the most suitable technologies over the short term with geo-thermal and small scale hydro projects as possible options in the future. Snider was on a University of Saskatchewan panel discussing how renewable energy can be used in Saskatchewan.
