The Wind Energy Institute of Canada (WEICan)

The Wind Energy Institute of Canada is a not-for-profit entity formed in 1981 that advances the development of wind energy across Canada through research, testing, innovation and collaboration.

Located in North Cape, Prince Edward Island on Canada’s east coast, we’re ideally situated for wind study with 300 degree exposure to the water, average wind speeds of 8.2 m/s at 50 m, and numerous icing events per year.

Our laboratory features a 10 MW Wind R&D Park, a storage test bed, meteorological towers and a small wind test bed, as well as other facilities. These, in addition to our extensive data sets and experienced personnel, provide opportunities for government, public/private sector companies and academia to research, demonstrate, test and validate technologies and concepts in a real world setting.
