The arrival of Joe Biden as President of the United States could bring water to the mill for several companies in the Mauricie and Center-du-Québec because his economic recovery plan relies on green energy.
Electric buses, wind turbines, charging stations, lithium batteries: several green energy companies in Mauricie and Center-du-Québec could collaborate in the American economic recovery under Joe Biden.
Marmen, for example, is set to participate in the largest renewable energy project in the United States.
“The process for wind turbine permits offshore is going to be facilitated, it is final ”, explained Wednesday Vincent Trudel, vice-president of the exploitation at Marmen.
AddÉnergie, whose electric charging station manufacturing plant is located in Shawinigan, also hopes to be able to penetrate the American market.
“I believe that Mr. Biden and his government are a catalyst,” said Louis Tremblay, President and CEO of AddÉnergie, in an interview with TVA Nouvelles.
Even though Joe Biden’s arrival is well received, the trade wars will not end overnight.
“With Mr. Biden, it is certain that the trade conflicts will not end, but it will be done on a more predictable basis”, explained the professor of economics at the University of Quebec at Trois-Rivières (UQTR) Frédéric Laurin.
“At the very least, he will announce his colors in advance, will present us with a little bit of what his game plan is, and will not deviate from it”, comments for his part Yves Lacroix, President and CEO of FAB3R.
