Renewable energy consultancy SgurrEnergy has expanded its Canadian operations base to Montreal and Toronto, a strategic move to build on growing business opportunities in eastern Canada.
According to SgurrEnergy, Ontario and Quebec are leading the way in Canadian renewable energy, particularly in wind energy, boasting around 7 GW of installed capacity between the two provinces. In addition, Ontario is one of the most successful in the country for solar installations, with government green initiatives driving the continuing growth of the industry.
As a result, the company announced the appointment of several executives to oversee the units. Andrew Brunskill has been appointed technical lead and will be based in Toronto. Brunskill has technically reviewed and analyzed more than 100 wind and solar projects to date, the company notes.
Jean Sebastien Naud will take on the role of business development manager for the Montreal region. Previously, Naud was project manager for a renewable energy consultancy involved in a wide range of renewable energy engineering activities, covering pre-feasibility, feasibility, construction and commissioning, as well as independent engineer reviews for financing and acquisition.
