NEIA releases recommendations for the growth of Newfoundland and Labrador’s renewable energy sector

For Immediate Release
October 10, 2019

(ST. JOHN’S, NL) – The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) has released a series of recommendations to support the growth of the province’s renewable energy sector.

“Our province is blessed with an abundance of natural resources, and when it comes to renewable energy we haven’t even scratched the surface,” says Kieran Hanley, NEIA’s Executive Director. “We believe there to be significant economic opportunity for this province associated with the development of our renewable energy assets”

Hanley says that NEIA’s publication “Untapped Potential in Our Natural Resources” is the culmination of a over a year’s worth of engagement with its membership and key industry partners. “We have a lot of home-grown expertise here in the province,” notes Hanley. “Our members have worked in renewable energy projects around the world, and have lots of experience and insight to offer on how we can grow this industry in our own backyard.”

“There’s a bright future for renewable energy in Newfoundland and Labrador, but there are things that need to be done today to realize that potential.” Hanley says the publication explores both present and long-term opportunities for the sector in the province.

“What we need is an open discussion and a plan – a shared vision between industry and government on what our renewable energy future could and should be,” says Hanley. “In 2018 our provincial government committed to the development of such a plan, and NEIA is eager to get started; we look forward to working with our provincial partners in realizing a strategy for renewable energy growth in Newfoundland and Labrador.”

Hanley will be presenting NEIA’s recommendations at its Newleef Clean Technology and Green Economy Conference next week in St. John’s (http://www.newleef.ca).
