NEIA with its partners is presenting a workshop on February 24th on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Unmanned Aerial Systems in the Natural Resources Sectors in Corner Brook. Themes for the workshop include the application of these technologies as they relate to: forestry; agriculture; energy; wildlife management / ecology; environmental monitoring; and GIS / mapping.
“Net metering will allow businesses in Newfoundland and Labrador to provide their green energy solutions locally; remove barriers to competitiveness for companies in comparison to those in other jurisdictions; and support local firms in testing and marketing their products and services internationally where small scale green energy compatibility is expected of them,” says Kieran Hanley, NEIA’s Executive Director.
The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) is moving forward with its next phase of business development in the Caribbean thanks, in part, to investments of just over $163,000 from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and close to $41,500 from the Department of Business, Tourism, Culture and Rural Development (BTCRD).
NEIA, in partnership ACOA and BTCRD, is continuing its work assisting firms in the investigation of and pursuit of international business opportunities in the Caribbean region. The 2017 Caribbean Project includes the development of a series of firm-specific market entry strategies, a mission to the region in the Spring of 2017, and a follow-up to the region in the Fall of 2017.
