Ontario funds wind energy conversion research
TORONTO, ONT-The Ontario government is providing $3.4 million to support a wind energy conversion project led by Dr Reza Iravani at the University of Toronto. The project will develop more efficient ways to convert wind energy into renewable electricity that can be supplied to the power grid. This will enable Ontario to place greater reliance on a renewable energy source and make it more affordable. The funding will leverage a matching investment from the private sector. The project is one of a series of leading-edge research studies recently honoured at the inaugural Premier's Innovation Awards ceremony, held at the MaRS Discovery District in mid-town Toronto.
