TORONTO, February 23, 2022 – Grasshopper Energy is pleased to announce that it has been invited to join the leadership council of the Canadian Renewable Energy Association (CanREA). SVP of Global Government Relations, H.E. Tudor Ulianovschi, will serve as Grasshopper Energy’s representative on the council. Grasshopper Energy is a leading sustainable energy company focused on the development, acquisition, and long-term ownership of clean energy assets.
One of the core values of Grasshopper Energy is “responsibility” for the environment and the belief in individual and collective responsibility to make the world a better place. This value reflects itself in letter and spirit in Mr. Ulianovschi’s advocacy of policy initiatives to accelerate net-zero carbon emission goals with governments in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Africa.
This opportunity underscores Mr. Ulianovschi and Grasshopper’s value-centricity in inspiring Canada’s energy sector and the importance of providing a unified energy vision among industry leaders to support comprehensive changes by federal and provincial governments to stimulate clean energy projects.
CanREA has had a significant impact in the renewable energy industry, driven by its critical mandate to engage policymakers and promote favorable conditions for innovation, development, and prosperity in the Canadian renewable energy market. Mr. Ulianovschi’s well positioned national and international influence would play an important role in supporting CanREA’s mandate.
“It is our pleasure to welcome Grasshopper Energyto our Leadership Council,” says Robert Hornung, President and CEO of CanERA. “As CanREA and its members work to support Canada’s objective of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, Mr. Ulianovschi’s knowledge and experience will help inform CanREA’s efforts to position Canada’s clean-energy sector as a global leader.”
“Canada is fortunate to have massive untapped renewable energy resources, including solar, storage and wind, and I am excited to work with the great team at CanREA to realize every bit of that potential,” says Tudor Ulianovschi. “If Canada is to reach its objective of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 it is essential for us to work cohesively with our partners in government, the energy sector, and with all key stakeholders across the country and the globe in empowering innovations in the renewable energy sector”
It is with great pleasure that we announce that Mr. Ulianovschi will work with CanREA in building sustainable solutions to the greatest challenge facing our world today. Supporting organizations such as CanREA that are uniting the renewable sector in advocating for change is a crucial part of our vision to accelerate the development of a sustainable world.
