Western Canada is now seen as one of the most promising markets in North America with its excellent wind resource, rising energy demand and strong policy drivers for clean energy development. By the end of the year, Western Canada will have almost 2,000 MW of installed wind energy capacity – but we are just scratching the surface of the potential for more wind energy in the region.
Join us in beautiful Vancouver, BC on April 11-12, 2013 to explore business opportunities and learn more about the economic, social and environmental opportunities and challenges now facing the wind energy industry in Western Canada. The event will also provide an overview of provincial policy developments as well as next steps to ensure the growth of the wind energy industry in Western Canada.
Come and network with the wind energy industry at Canada’s Premier Wind Energy Event.
