The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) and the New Brunswick government will partner on a wind energy seminar scheduled for Sept. 22-23 in Moncton, New Brunswick. ‘Growing Wind in Atlantic Canada: Cooperative Solutions for Regional and Export Opportunities’ will look at solutions to maximize the development of the wind industry in the Atlantic region.
‘The Atlantic Provinces have some of the best wind resources in the world, and they sit right next to the U.S. Northeast, an area with a tremendous demand for green energy,’ says Robert Hornung, president of CanWEA. ‘This seminar will look at ways that increased regional cooperation can help wind play a larger role, not only in satisfying growing Atlantic energy demand, but also in accessing U.S. green power markets and the huge economic opportunities they represent.’
The seminar comes at a time when momentum is building towards greater cooperation in the region on energy issues, and as New Brunswick develops as an energy hub for Atlantic Canada, according to CanWEA.
