Canada's power sector has seen significant growth in demand over the last two decades, placing it among the top per-capita consumers of electricity in the world. Wind power is its most important source of renewable energy, and accounted for around 42% of total generation in 2014. Small hydropower was the second most green power generating source in 2014, followed by biomass. Both wind and solar energy have registered strong growth in recent years due to government initiatives to promote development, such as the ecoEnergy for Renewable Power Program, the Clean Energy Fund Program, and favorable Feed-in Tariffs (FiT). Over 230 wind power projects are currently expected to come online in the near future. The wind energy sector registered a total completed deal value of $10.1 billion between 2014 and 2015, along with an announced deal value of $7 billion.
