UWindsor grads figure prominently as Canadian wind energy leaders
December 14, 2018
Two University of Windsor alumni at the forefront of Canada’s wind energy industry hope to drive economic and social change that will assist the country in its transition to a low-carbon economy.
“You’ll never run out of wind. Not only is the resource infinite, it’s free,” says Brandy Giannetta BA ’98, MA ’99. “Wind energy is now the lowest-cost option for new electricity generation in Canada, and it can be deployed incrementally and quickly.”
Giannetta and fellow alumnus Phil McKay BEng ’07, MASc ’11 champion wind energy growth nationwide in their roles at the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA), a non-profit industry association that represents the wind energy industry. CanWEA’s members are involved in the development and application of wind energy technology, products and services.
