In the News | Prof Tansey explains wind should be first step toward green energy shift


The Globe and Mail sought Associate Professor, and Executive Director of Sauder’s ISIS Research CentreJames Tansey’s expertise on emerging markets and technologies involved in the resurrection of Canada’s once waning offshore wind sector.

Tansey emphasizes that it’s not only about the clean energy itself, but also about the knowledge that is fostered in a growing market.

“There’s a huge amount of expertise that gets built up around siting and wind farm development that I think is really important,” he says and notes that this should be the first step toward shifting to green energy.
