Adarsh Mehta, development director of Acciona Wind Energy Canada, has been elected as the new chair of the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) board of directors.
Mehta's top priority will be strengthening broad public support for wind energy development. Other tasks include raising visibility of CanWEA and highlighting the benefits the organization provides its members and the communities they serve. She will also push for legislative policies at provincial and federal levels that support renewable energy development in order to attract investment dollars.
Mehta began her work in the wind energy industry by conducting academic research of wind flow over complex terrain. At GPCo and ORTECH Power, she performed wind resource assessments and conducted technical due diligence. She joined Acciona in May 2010 and has been a member of CanWEA for five years.
