Where the Wind Blows
Canada-based BluEarth Renewables leads the charge for wind power in Wyoming, with the development of two new wind farms near Rock River and Medicine Bow. The Two Rivers Wind and Lucky Star Wind projects are expected to employ approximately 400 workers during construction and three dozen permanent employees ongoing, generating sales and property taxes for the state and local communities. With a state economy historically dependent on mined natural resources such as coal, projects such as these hold great promise for a state blessed with an abundance of wind and large-scale engineering project know-how.
Canada and the U.S.: There for Each Other
In 2020, Canada and the U.S. again worked together as the COVID-19 pandemic took hold across the world. Canada and the U.S. preserved supply chains across the border, deeming trucking essential. Canada and the U.S. traded important inputs for the production of personal protective equipment and medical equipment, maintaining a thriving bilateral trade in finished goods. Soon after the outbreak, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research began awarding grants to joint research projects proposed by Canadian and U.S. institutions to try and find an end to the virus.
No matter our shared challenges and as we have done in times of crisis, Canada and the U.S. will continue to support one another as friends, partners and allies.
A Deeper Dive into Trade
Canada and Wyoming trade in sectors as wide ranging as chemicals to live animals, but nothing may be more important than the knowledge exchange “trade” happening every day. In addition to the important carbon capture research happening at the Integrated Test Center, Wyoming and Canada lean on one another for the free flow of ideas and expertise. The Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and the University of Wyoming operate a joint engineering degree program to train the next generation of energy leaders. These areas of partnership hold the potential to generate billions in the future as the research produces new technologies and develops human talent that will benefit the world.
