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 the day participants will have a good general grasp of wind energy, essential knowledge for someone new to Wind or someone in a new role. The course is presented by Electricity expert Marcel Chorel, a person with a passion for the industry and an equally keen interest in discovering new ways, such as harnessing the wind, to generate cleaner power.
