Why CanWEA 2019? A Strong Industry Outlook
The CanWEA Annual Conference & Exhibition is the biggest and best show of its kind. Uniquely focused on Canada’s wind energy market, the event provides a venue for more than 1,200 industry leaders and decision-makers from around the world to make connections, discuss the latest developments and identify opportunities for future growth.
The 35th CanWEA Annual Conference & Exhibition takes place in Calgary October 8-10, 2019.
CanWEA is looking forward to 2019 as a year for new developments in the industry. We also expect an increase in international attendance at this year’s event. The 35th annual conference is expected to feature more than 130 exhibiting companies, providing them with an exclusive opportunity to network and generate new business leads.
As the demand for wind energy increases, so does the number of new business possibilities that are arising in a range of industry sectors:
- In 2019, Canada expects to see approximately 1,000 MW of new wind energy projects commissioned including the projects contracted under Alberta’s first renewable energy procurement and projects currently under construction in Ontario and going online in Saskatchewan.
- Quebec and Atlantic regions are well positioned for export opportunities. States in the U.S. northeast facing strict carbon emission caps and the retirement of aging generating facilities are increasingly seeing clean power imports from Canada as a reliable and cost-effective solution.
- Wind farm Operations & Maintenance market revenue opportunity is estimated to be $450 million by 2020.
- As Canada’s wind energy fleet matures, new opportunities are emerging for independent service providers.
- Mining sector and remote communities are increasingly turning to wind energy to offset diesel energy use.
- Canada continues to explore new markets for clean wind energy in sectors such as transportation and heating, and to pursue opportunities for exporting wind to the United States.
