The Wind Energy Experience in Ontario session opened the conference with input some international panelists as well as Ontario representatives.

Additionally, seminars taking place over the three days included:

  • “Remote Communities and First Nations Projects;”
  • “Financing Wind Projects–Current Challenges and Opportunities;”

  • “Wind Turbine Noise Measurement and Compliance Requirements in Canada.”

Next year, the 30th CanWEA event will take place in Montreal.
