Government evaluating Canada's manufacturing abilities

Canada's federal government has launched a study it hopes will provide further insight into how to attract investment in the manufacturing side of the wind power industry. The study, says Industry Canada's Margaret Bailey, will evaluate Canada's manufacturing capabilities, assess the advantages and disadvantages manufacturers face when locating plant in Canada, identify regions well-positioned to serve key markets in North America, and look at other sectors, such as the automotive or aerospace industries, that may have technologies or production lines that can be adapted to the wind energy industry. The research will focus on the entire supply chain, including component manufacturing, assembly, site-specific engineering, installation, maintenance, and repair for grid-connected, utility-scale wind turbines. "Ultimately it could help us understand the rationale for further programs or policies that support an expanded wind industry. That is our goal," says Bailey.
