At its 29th Conference and Exhibition in Toronto this week, the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) presented its annual awards in recognition of organizations and individuals who have worked diligently to advance the country's wind sector.

CanWEA awarded the Matt Holder Community Connection Award to TransAlta Corp.'s Terry Kwas., the Friend of Wind Award to Malcolm Hamilton, the Individual Leadership Award to ENERCON Canada's Michael Weidemann, the Group Leadership Award to Rio Tinto for its Diavik Diamond Mine Wind Farm, and the R.J.

In addition, CanWEA presented the Wind Energy Project Award for the first time. The group awarded it to EDF En Canada and Enbridge for the Lac-Alfred Wind Farm in Quebec, Canada’s largest wind farm. CanWEA says the project, commissioned this year, has demonstrated an exceptional commitment to responsible and sustainable development through its initial development, community engagement, permitting and construction.
