Paul Gipe Wins Prestigious Wind Energy Award

We offer a well-deserved congratulations to Chelsea Green’s own Paul Gipe, author of Wind Energy Basics: A Guide to Home- and Community-Scale Wind Energy Systems, Second Edition and Wind Power: Renewable Energy for Home, Farm, and Business, for this achievement.

TORONTO, Sept. 23 /CNW Telbec/ – The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) recognized organizations and individuals working tirelessly to advance the Canadian wind energy industry during its gala Awards Banquet yesterday as part of its 25th Annual Conference and Trade Show.

Awards were presented in four categories: Individual Leadership, Group Leadership, the R.J. Templin Award for scientific, technical, engineering or policy work which has helped wind energy grow to new heights in Canada. The Friend of Wind award, in recognition of outstanding contributions made by individuals or groups in advancing awareness of the benefits of wind energy at the community level, was presented for the first time this year.

Individual Leadership Award


Paul Gipe has worked with wind energy since 1976. He is best known for his
advocacy of wind energy and for his articles and books on the subject. He has
lectured widely on wind energy and how to minimize its impact on the
environment and the communities of which it is a part.

“We are proud to recognize this year’s CanWEA award winners for their outstanding contributions to the wind energy industry in Canada,” said CanWEA President Robert Hornung. “It is thanks to their ongoing efforts and achievements that Canada’s wind energy industry is well on its way to reaching its goal of providing 20 per cent of the country’s electricity needs by 2025.”
