Cision: Carolina Rinfret named WaterPower Canada President and CEO

OTTAWA, ONMay 18, 2022 /CNW/ – The board of directors of WaterPower Canada is pleased to announce the appointment of Carolina Rinfret as the association’s new president and chief executive officer. Rinfret assumes this role at a point in time when national and international developments firmly underscore the increasingly vital role of hydroelectricity as a source of clean, secure and affordable energy.

“Hydropower delivers the majority of Canada’s renewable electricity, and through a combination of refurbishments and project development, we can play an even more important role than we do today. We need adept leadership to help create the right regulatory conditions and relationships, and we’re confident Carolina brings a combination of skills and attributes that will enable hydropower to achieve what Canadians need it to.”

–          Gilbert Bennett, Vice President Power Development, NL Hydro and WaterPower Canada Board Chair

“Hydroelectricity has been the backbone of Canada’s electricity supply for well over a century, and it will be key to our rapid but orderly transition to a very different energy system. I know the industry has the capacity for well-planned growth and integration, and I greatly look forward to working with members, governments and stakeholders to help make that happen.”
