Wind energy is a promising sector for Canadian businesses – one that is expected to attract $1 trillion in investments between now and 2020. And Canadian manufacturers are well poised to be a part of it, according to a recent report.

The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) and Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) recently published a report touting the opportunities wind energy can create in Canada. To date, wind energy development has increased so rapidly across the world that there is a huge demand for wind turbines – and the parts and services that make them.

The two associations have formed a partnership that will allow them to share information, promote opportunities in the wind industry and coordinate efforts among numerous industry stakeholders. Their goal is to bring key jurisdictions and stakeholders together and coordinate supply chain development activities in support of an integrated national strategy for the wind industry.
