The Quebec government is creating a new task force to assess future wind power development in the province, and the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) says it is confident this initiative will serve to strengthen Quebec's wind energy sector. The association adds that it will actively participate in the task force to further promote the merits of wind energy.

“Wind energy has a role to play in Quebec’s economy and sustainable energy development,” says Jean-Frederick Legendre, Quebec Regional Director for CanWEA. “The province is well positioned for the next development phase of the wind energy sector to generate new investments and to further attract component manufacturing.”

He continues, “We are determined to work with the government to allow the industry to grow in a favorable and predictable context, which is necessary in order for new wind projects to materialize.”
