THINK RENEWABLE. THINK NIAGARA. All across Niagara Region, the winds of innovation are blowing. The boom in clean, alternative energy, especially wind power, presents a tremendous opportunity for economic growth across North America. And Niagara is on the threshold of becoming a major player in wind energy development. Spurred by public and private investment in the sector and by a heightened sense of the region’s natural, location and infrastructure advantages, the development of industries related to wind-based energy generation has become a regional economic priority. Many of the opportunities come from the manufacture and assembly of wind energy components including wind turbines, blades and towers. Niagara has a highly competitive manufacturing infrastructure with depth in heavy metal fabrication and assembly, die casting, and foundry/forging operations – all skills drawn from the region’s rich history in shipbuilding, structural steel, auto parts, aerospace and machining. Within the region, the Niagara Industrial Association, a consortium of leading manufacturers, is actively diversifying their operations to leverage new business opportunities focused on wind energy component manufacturing. At the same time, smaller, entrepreneurial companies are moving forward creating new wind power-related products and niche markets. We invite you to join them in Niagara… and to offer your own business savvy and technical know-how in serving the burgeoning wind energy sector in North America. www.niagaracanada.com

NIAGARA ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION The Niagara Economic Development Corporation (NEDC) continues to focus its efforts in domestic and international markets as a competitive location for investment. The Wind Energy sector, the fastest growing source of electricity, has been identified as a great opportunity for the regional manufacturing and service industries. The second edition of the Niagara Wind Energy Supply Chain Directory will be used to promote regional companies in Canada and internationally. This directory is the result of a survey and lists all companies that offer their services to the Wind Energy sector. It is accessible on NEDC’s website and will be updated from time to time.
