December 3 2014 - During 2013, more than half the investments in green energy were made in the wind sector. A study released on Tuesday by Vancouver based Clean Energy Canada says that investments in green energy rose by 45% last year to total $6.5 billion. Approximately $3.6 billion of this was invested in wind energy. The industry is also increasingly active on the international scene. In 2012, the companies surveyed had exported a total of nearly $270 million in parts and components of wind turbines. Frédéric Côté, Director of the TechnoCentre éolien, says there is great potential in the US market, which is responsible for more than half the exports. He points out, however, that it can take time and effort before getting results. "It may take three, four, five years before the first contract is signed," says Côté. "But we see that there is a favorable environment and that our companies are able to compete with what is done elsewhere."
