Ottawa, September 20, 2022 — RE+ Events, Hannover Fairs and the Canadian Renewable Energy Association (CanREA) are proud to announce their new partnership for Electricity Transformation Canada (ETC), Canada’s premier renewable energy conference and exhibition.
This year’s ETC will take place October 26-28, at the Metro Toronto Convention Center, Toronto, Ontario.
“Canada has ambitious goals, to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions by 40% from 2005 levels by 2030, and to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. This will mean radical, rapid transformation for our energy system. Luckily, the wind, solar and energy storage industries are up for the challenge,” said Robert Hornung, President and CEO of the Canadian Renewable Energy Association.
ETC will spotlight the necessity of rapidly expanding and accelerating the deployment of wind energy, solar energy and energy storage, and its integration into Canada’s electricity system, to support national greenhouse-gas emission-reduction objectives.
“ETC is a vital platform for the Canadian clean energy market. We are proud to support CanREA and ETC’s mission to create a sustainable, modern electricity system in Canada,” said Stephen Miner, President & CEO, RE+ Events.
This three-day event provides a platform for renewable energy leaders to network, collaborate and move the industry forward, showcasing the best wind, solar, and energy-storage solutions from distributors, engineers, financiers, installers and manufacturers.
“Wind and solar energy will play a key role in the energy transition. Our partnership with CanREA and RE+ Events will ensure ETC facilitates Canada’s goal to achieve net-zero by 2050,” said Bernd Rohde, Managing Director, Hannover Fairs México.
ETC was developed by the Canadian Renewable Energy Association (CanREA), in partnership with Hannover Fairs. The addition of RE+ Events to this existing partnership will contribute to even greater success in 2022 and beyond.
