CANADA’S LARGEST RENEWABLE ENERGY EVENT TO LAUNCH IN 2020
June 27, 2019
The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) and the Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA) have announced a joint partnership with Hannover Fairs (Canada) Inc. to create a unique new industry event that is dedicated to exploring the opportunities and challenges for wind energy, solar energy, energy storage, and other complementary technologies. These technologies will play a critical role in transforming Canada to a low carbon economy that makes increasing use of clean, affordable, and reliable renewable electricity.
Electricity Transformation Canada will take place November 9–12, 2020 in Toronto; to focus on wind energy, solar energy, and energy storage, while expanding to incorporate complementary technologies.
Globally, nearly two-thirds of all new power generation capacity currently comes from renewable energy sources. In Canada, wind and solar energy have both seen significant growth over the past decade as initial steps have been taken to decarbonize Canada’selectricity grid. Much more is possible.
“Electricity Transformation Canada will bring together stakeholders who produce and use Canada’s diverse renewable energy resources,” said Robert Hornung, President of CanWEA. “The event will focus on the future role that renewable energy and related technologies will play in the production, management, and consumption of energy in Canada.”
