Hot Springs
9,984,670 km2
Population 35,344,962 (Stat Can, 2014)
GDP 1.9 G$ (Stat Can, 2014)
Energy 2,883 PJ/yr (Nat Ener Board, 2013)
Ground Source Heat Pumps
Geothermal heat pump units installed in Canada from 1990 to 2013 (Tanguay, 2014)
2006 to 2008:
growth rate 40%/yr
peak installation 15,913 units
Increase in oil and gas prices
Financial incentives from governments

2010 to 2012:
Financial crisis
Decrease in oil and gas prices
End of many government incentives

Back to growth?
