The author reviews Canada's energy resources: conventional oil, Alberta oil sands, coal, natural gas, uranium, and electrical energy (hydro-electricity and nuclear power). Tables show energy demands for the year 1986 according to the type of energy and per sector of the economy. Modal breakdowns for the transport sector are also given. An appendix lists possible non-conventional sources of energy, e.g., geothermal power (hot dry rock), solar energy, hydrogen fuel, wind energy, plantation and refuse, magnet hydrodynamics, tidal power, nuclear power, synthetic petroleum, coal gasification, synthetic natural gas (sng), and non-conventional oil extracted from oil sands. /TRRL/
