- investigation of joint venture and various partnership opportunities as part of a financing strategy for the company's portfolio of wind projects in Alberta, British Columbia and Ireland,

- preparing bids to enter up to five British Columbia wind projects into the 2008 BC Hydro call for clean power,

- completing final design for the 75 MW Ghost Pine wind project in Alberta, which is in the process of submitting final environmental and development permits, and
