VANCOUVER, Sept. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - The Canadian Wind Energy Association
(CanWEA) will kick off its 27th Annual Conference and Exhibition in
Vancouver next week, October 3 - 6, by unveiling its long-term plan for
the strategic development of wind energy in British Columbia. CanWEA's WindVision2025: A Strategy for BC identifies the significant opportunity for the growth of wind energy in
the province of British Columbia due to its plentiful wind resource,
its heritage hydroelectric facilities and the province's accelerating
demand for affordable and clean electricity.
The CanWEA vision recognizes BC's rich heritage of natural resources,
its forward-looking investments in energy infrastructure and British
Columbians' commitment to reduce their province's carbon footprint.
With BC's significant wind resource, CanWEA makes the case for wind
energy as the ideal addition to and complement for BC's heritage
hydroelectric system and clean energy policies. The document outlines
the significant economic, social and environmental benefits that will
be realized with the growth of wind energy.
The document will be of significant interest to editors, reporters and
researchers focusing on wind and other renewable energy in the western
provinces, nationally and internationally with detailed perspective as
well as current and projected statistical data.
For full access to the media centre, plenary sessions, presentation
venues, workshops and tradeshow floor, media representatives are asked
