GE Energy has signed a patent licensing agreement with AAER Inc. of Bromont, Quebec, regarding GE's variable speed technology for wind turbines.

"The agreement with AAER is the latest example of GE's strategy of licensing our key patents for wind turbine control technologies to help suppliers and customers meet the rapidly growing demand for clean, efficient wind energy," says Victor Abate, GE's vice president, renewables.
