Feds to invest $3M in Quebec wind energy research centre
TechnoCentre éolien works on turbine research and economic development
GASPÉ, Que.—The Canadian government is looking to fuel Quebec’s wind energy industry through a $3 million investment in TechnoCentre éolien (TCE).
Located on the northeastern tip of the province in Gaspe, Que., the wind energy development centre supports turbine research, technology transfer and provides technical assistance services for renewable businesses.
The organization plans to use the $3 million from the Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED) to continue developing new products and services as well as branching out to new markets.
“CED has been a partner of TCE from the outset,” Frédéric Côté, the centre’s general manager, said. “Its unwavering support in recent years has enabled us to develop world-class expertise in renewable energy, to conduct research that helps advance science and to partner with a number of businesses in developing and adapting technologies.”
