Co-operatives as a Green Agent

A study by the Canadian Co-operative Association examines co-operatives that are creating and facilitating renewable energy development in Canada. Of the 71 such co-ops in Canada in 2010, 26% are in the biofuel sector, 22% in the wind sector, 3% in solar, 8% in biomass, 3% in hydro, and 28% in “varied”. The report describes the organizational structure, stage of development, and geographical distribution, and lists each co-operative by name, address, and web address.
