Cumulative Electiricy Generated since 1989:Calculated from Table "Electricity Generation."
Cumulative Fossil Fuel Electricity Generation Capacity since 1992:

Calculated from Table "Annual Electricity Generation Capacity."

Notes:
-Fossil Fuel Electricity Generation is the sum of Coal, Natural Gas, and Fuel Oil Generation Capacity.
-Because actual generated electricity is only roughly 60% of the annual generated capacity in Alberta, this number is not a good proxy for cumulative electricity generated. However, it does give a good snapshot of the historical mix of Alberta's generation capacity.

Cumulative Renewable Electricity Capacity since 1992:

Calculated from Table "Annual Electricity Generation Capacity."

Notes:
-Renewable Electricity Generation is caluculated as the sum of Hydro, Wind, Biomass, Biogas, Waste Heat, and Other Generation Capacity.
-Because actual generated electricity is only roughly 60% of the annual generated capacity in Alberta, this number is not a good proxy for cumulative electricity generated. However, it does give a good snapshot of the historical mix of Alberta's generation capacity.
