The consequences of the 2014 Quebec elections, the end (in 2015) of the current energy policy, the effect of climate change and of the economic crisis on the social acceptance of projects, and the temporary surplus situation will all have some influence on the health of Quebec's renewable energy sector in the coming year.
AQPER member companies make some of their top people available to the Association to help it fulfill its mission. These engineers, lawyers, biologists and high-level managers who work in the field every day can identify strategic issues and make important contributions to the Association's policies and positions.
Quebec’s 2006-2015 Energy Plan (Stratégie énergétique 2006-2015) created expectations for renewable energy development in the Province. A commitment to 4000 MW of wind power production capacity, the signing of contracts with small hydro producers and ambitious GGE reduction targets all pointed to growth for the sector.
The AQPER is well acquainted with the political, economic and social environment in which its members operate. This thorough understanding shines through in strong lines of argument and well-thought-out actions designed to further advance renewable energy on several levels.
