Boralex Inc.: Patrick Lemaire ranked 69th in North American Power List
Monday, June 6th, 2018, Montréal – Boralex Inc. (“Boralex” or the “Corporation”) (TSX: BLX) today announces that its President and Chief Executive Officer, Patrick Lemaire, has been named as one of the most influential people in the North American wind energy industry. This is the second time that Mr. Lemaire has been recognized in a report initiative driven by the British magazine, A Word About Wind.
The North American Power List follows in the tradition of previous unique and independent reports published by A Word About Wind, but for the first time focuses solely on the North American market, measuring the individual influence of key players in the sector and charting their impact on the industry over the past year. Each candidate was assessed, rated and ranked by an impartial senior advisory board.
Mr. Lemaire achieved a position of 69, underlining his increasing influence in building the North American wind energy industry of the future.
“This recognition is a true honour for Boralex”, said Mr. Lemaire. “We built the first natural gas-fired cogeneration plant in Kingsey Falls, Quebec in 1990 and today Boralex ranks among Canada’s top renewable energy producers. I want to thank all the employees whose hard work, dedication, entrepreneurial spirit, and ingenuity enable Boralex to reach new heights.”
This is the second time that Mr. Lemaire has received a prestigious industry recognition. Last November, he ranked 58th in the Top 100 Power People in Wind.
