Wind Energy in Quebec

At its annual conference in Toronto in October, the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) projected that 60% of Canada’s wind power installations in 2012 will occur in Quebec. In November 2012, the association released several documents produced in 2010, including a comprehensive economic impact study of the wind energy sector in Québec produced by Hatch Consulting and economist Jean-Claude Thibodeau.
