Nergica is a centre of applied research that stimulates innovation in the renewable energy industry through research, technical assistance, technology transfer and technical support for businesses and communities. Its mission: creating new opportunities for renewable energy.
More precisely, Nergica specializes in developing solutions for renewable energy integration, optimizing wind farm and solar array performance and supporting growing SMEs. The organization carries out its activities by drawing from a multidisciplinary team of experts, research infrastructures in a natural setting that are unavailable elsewhere in Canada, and custom services that support innovation.
Initially recognized for its expertise in cold climates and O&M, Nergica also offers advanced services for the development and assessment of new technologies, commercialization of innovations, adapted meteorology, microgrids, energy storage and grid management. Initially known as the TechnoCentre éolien when it was founded in 2000, Nergica is an official college centre for technology transfer (CCTT) and is affiliated with the Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles.
