The TechnoCentre éolien, a key player in Québec's wind energy network
The TechnoCentre éolien (TCE) is a centre of expertise that supports the development of the wind industry through research, technology transfer and technical assistance for businesses. The TCE's primary areas of activity relate to wind energy in cold climates and complex terrain, adaptation of technologies, and integration of Quebec businesses into wind industry supply chains.
Founded in 2000, the TechnoCentre éolien is a not-for-profit organisation whose mission is to contribute to the development of a made-in-Québec industrial wind energy network that can compete on North American and world stages while promoting the Gaspésie―Îles-de-la-Madeleine region, central to this emerging niche of Québec's economy.
The TCE owns and operates the Site nordique expérimental en éolien CORUS (SNEEC) which features two 2.05-MW Senvion wind turbines, a hybrid microgrid wind-diesel-other source power station, two 126-metre wind measurement masts and a LIDAR.
