9eme Colloque de l'industrie Éolienne Québécoise

The Ninth Quebec Wind Energy Conference was not an event to be missed, gathering over 250 participants from diverse backgrounds. At the core of this annual event, wind industry issues and innovations in all its forms are discussed. 
The theme this year was Driven by Wind!
I had the pleasure to attend the seventh Conference two years ago held in the city of Matane, Quebec, Canada which focused on the theme of An Agenda for the Future. This coincided with the announcement by the Government of Quebec regarding the 800 MW wind power development. The Minister of Tourism and the representative for the Bas-Saint-Laurent region spoke on behalf of the Government of Quebec.  
This year, the conference was held at the beautiful shore village of Carleton-sur-Mer, in the Baie Bleue Hotel venue the 15, 16 and 17 June 2015.

Please read, discuss and share.... 
Here is a small sample of the article, click here for full article [Source Elsevier]. 
"Communication is a vital part of the academic process: sharing results with your peers means your research builds the knowledge base, adding to our understanding of the universe and everything that goes on inside it.

So why does the writing have to be so dull?
