The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) took the opportunity to announce a record year for wind energy in Canada at the World Energy Congress (WEC) this week.

“Building on the growth in 2010, we can also state with a high degree of certainty that 2011 will be a record year for wind in Canada with more than 1,000 megawatts (MW) likely to be installed,” said Robert Hornung, president of CanWEA. “We expect wind energy’s rapid growth in Canada to continue with production tripling in the next five years.”

By the end of 2010, Canada is projected to have 754 MW of new wind energy capacity, representing $1.7 billion in new investment, according to CANWEA.

CANWEA is at WEC promoting its annual conference, to be held at the same venue as WEC, the Palais des Congres in Montreal, this November.
