The focus of this course will be on how wind energy is harnessed – the technologies, the economics, the R&D, the potential for further wind development in Canada and abroad.
By the end of this one-day course, You will have a solid grasp of wind energy, essential knowledge if you are new to the energy industry or taking on a new role in Wind. You will learn how wind promises to be more than a niche component of the electricity grid. Capital and operating costs for Wind have plummeted in recent years, and as energy policies increasingly embrace Renewables, Wind’s importance grows daily. Installed wind capacity grew by 10% in 2018, according to BP (2019), now providing 4.8% of all power to the world; compare this to 2010, only eight years earlier, when Wind and other Renewables combined to produce only 2% of the global total. In a world that produces and consumes vast amounts of power, Wind’s 4.8% is a significant slice of the pie.
Electricity expert Marcel Chorel designed and now presents this course. Marcel demonstrates his passion for the electricity industry and his equally keen interest in discovering new ways — such as harnessing the wind — to generate reliable, clean power.
