PPM Energy, ScottishPower's U.S. energy business, recently announced it will expand its wind development activities to Canada through its PPM Energy Canada affiliate. According to PPM, the company's objective is to build a development portfolio and convert this to operational assets, focusing initially on the provinces of Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec.

"We have enjoyed great success to date from our gas storage operations in Alberta," says Terry Hudgens, PPM Energy's chief executive officer. "We want to build on this success and leverage our impressive track record of wind development and operations from the U.S. into the Canadian market."
