Why CanWEA 2018? 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 1,500 industry leaders and decision-makers from around the world to make connections, discuss the latest developments and identify opportunities for future growth.
The 34th CanWEA Annual Conference & Exhibition takes place in Calgary October 23-25, 2018.
CanWEA is looking forward to 2018 as a year for new developments in the industry. We also expect an increase in international attendance at this year’s event. The 34th annual conference is expected to feature more than 125 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:
- Existing provincial energy strategies are targeting the installation of as much as 7,000 MW of new wind energy capacity by 2030 with 600 MW already underway. Additional energy strategy/policy announcements are expected this year.
- 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.
