PODCAST – Green Energy Futures presents our exclusive interview with Dan Balaban, CEO of Greengate Power, the company that has developed the largest wind project in Canada and is developing the largest solar project in Canadian history.

The former oil and gas entrepreneur embraced renewable energy when he started Greengate Power about a decade ago and built two game-changing wind power projects in Alberta at a time when it was not easy to do.

Today his company is developing the Travers Solar Project, a 465-megawatt solar project near Vulcan, Alberta. The project has brought $700 million in investment to Alberta and it's just one of half a dozen projects his company has in the works in Alberta. And it's just part of a solar boom now happening in Canada's oil province. 

This is our full interview with Dan Balaban in which he talks about the solar boom now going on in Alberta, why it is happening and the incredible economic opportunity that energy transition offers in the world.
