Report: Construction industry to power Manitoba's growth
Winnipeg Free Press
Manitoba is literally building towards a brighter economic future, claims a recent national report.
According to the Conference Board of Canada, a booming construction industry will help push Manitoba to be among the growth leaders among the Canadian provinces this year and next. Per the Provincial Outlook-Winter 2015 report, Manitoba's Gross Domestic Product is expected to rise to 2.9 per cent in 2015 and 3.0 per cent in 2016 — well above the national growth projection.
Cutting heating costs, developing new skills
The Free Press took a tour of geothermal projects on the Interlake First Nations of Fisher River and Peguis one bright but bitter windy day recently.
The two neighbouring First Nations are 220 kilometres northwest of Winnipeg on Highway 17. Both want to convert all their heating needs to geothermal. For the last two years, they've quietly gone about the conversion through a Manitoba Hydro homeowner loan program and the help of an energy brokerage called Aki Energy.
Remote Manitoba First Nation gets funding for new bridges
A new road development connecting First Nations communities in northern Manitoba could provide residents with lower food prices, better housing, and improved health care.
That was the message at a news conference held recently by Aboriginal Affairs Minister Eric Robinson to announce that the Bunibonibee First Nation has signed a community benefits agreement linked to road construction on the east side of Lake Winnipeg.

Manitoba's winter roads open
Manitoba's approximately 2,200-kilometre winter road system is now open, allowing large trucks and other vehicles to get needed supplies to remote communities.
Each year, more than 2,000 shipments of goods are trucked to a large number of isolated northern communities. The system also provides road access for area residents.
Journey to Churchill benefiting from geothermal heating, cooling
A geothermal energy system running the Journey to Churchill exhibit at Assiniboine Park Zoo is continuing to generate savings.
The system provides clean, renewable energy for heating and cooling of the exhibit, and comes with the assistance of a $105,160 grant under the Manitoba Geothermal Energy Incentive Program.
The system services four buildings at the zoo, including the Gateway to Arctic building, Tundra Grill, water treatment complex, and the International Polar Bear Conservation Centre.
Report: Wind power faces challenges within Saskatoon
While wind turbine technology continues to make advancements, Saskatoon Light & Power won't be generating electricity from wind in the Saskatoon area any time soon.
According to a report going to city council, wind power faces challenges in Saskatoon, which include the need for large-scale wind turbines located a recommended at 550 metres from residences, and the need to avoid the airport and flight paths.
Wind turbines installed within iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris
New York-based renewable energy solutions firm UGE International has installed a pair of wind turbines at the Eiffel Tower that produce enough electricity to power the iconic monument's first-floor commercial areas.
Installed 400 feet above ground level, the wind energy system was designed by UGE to produce a combined 10,000 kWh of electricity each year.
