The TechnoCentre éolien (TCE) is a centre of expertise that supports the development of the wind industry through research, technology transfer and technical assistance for businesses. The TCE’s primary areas of activity relate to wind energy in cold climates and complex terrain, adaptation of technologies, and integration of Quebec businesses into wind industry supply chains. Founded in 2000, the TechnoCentre éolien is a not-for-profit organisation whose mission is to contribute to the development of a made-in-Québec industrial wind energy network that can compete on North American and world stages while promoting the Gaspésie―Îles-de-la-Madeleine region, central to this emerging niche of Québec’s economy. The TCE owns and operates two 2.05-MW Senvion wind turbines, two 126-metre wind measurement masts, a LIDAR and a designed-for-research microgrid infrastructure which allows it to work on every stage of the technology development process, from R&D to real-condition validation to industry integration.
