Boralex

Boralex develops, builds and operates renewable energy production sites in Canada, France, the UK and the US. It is a Canadian market leader in the onshore wind power industry, as well as other renewable energy sources including hydroelectric, thermal and solar power, and is traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange along with convertible debentures. Pascal Hurtubise, vice president head of legal and company secretary, leads an expert legal team made of top professionals within the renewable energy industry as well as elements of environmental, corporate, M&A and commercial law and everything in between. In the last year, the Boralex legal team has been active in terms of M&A transactions, bringing some major successes to the company including the September 2018-announced acquisition of Invenergy Renewables, encompassing five wind farms in Québec, totalling 201 MW of net installed capacity, for C$215m. Additionally, the company announced the acquisition of the remaining projects developed by Ecotera Développement, a process first started in 2015, increasing Boralex’s market share in France to over 1,000 MW.
