New wind map for New Brunswick  

Researchers at the University of Moncton have unveiled an updated, high-resolution wind map of New Brunswick.

The new map has 25 times more information than previous versions, with more detail about land features and wind velocity. University spokesman Yves Gagnon says the map will help build the province’s wind energy industry.

The provincial government has said it wants New Brunswick to produce 300 megawatts of electricity from wind energy.

In particular, the map identifies “exceptional wind potential” along the Acadian Peninsula.

Energy Minister Jack Keir says the map is part of the government’s strategy for New Brunswick to be self-sustainable in 2026.
