Heartland Generation  |  Energy Transition

Energy Transition

We believe in an energy transition that is fair and just and are committed to finding innovative solutions that extend the life of existing assets and create economic opportunities.


Decarbonization is key to Heartland Generation's future success and crucial to our global wellbeing.

We understand the importance of what happens today, and believe we are well positioned to help support our industry through the clean energy transition.

We have made great strides in reducing our impact on the environment, but we know that more is needed. We are committed and working toward our goal of net zero by 2050 and support Canada's increased commitment to lowering emissions through the Paris Agreement.
