Renewable Energy Systems Americas Inc. (RES Americas) has announced that RES Group's global construction portfolio has exceeded 8 GW, of which more than 6 GW is located in North America.

RES Americas was founded in 1997, and RES Canada was founded in 2003. The two companies' combined construction portfolio totals more than 6.2 GW of wind projects and more than 100 MW of solar projects in the U.S. and Canada, RES Americas says. The companies have also constructed 534 miles of overhead and transmission lines.

"The North American wind industry has seen significant growth in the last decade, and we're pleased to have been an integral part in supporting a low-carbon future, energy independence, economic development and job creation during that time," says Susan Reilly, president and CEO of RES Americas. "We look forward to continuing our efforts to shape public policy for renewable energy in North America."

Peter Clibbon, vice president of development for RES Canada, adds, "Canada's renewable markets have been developing rapidly, and it's exciting to see the changes taking place and the opportunities that are available to grow this important sector of our future economy."
