More than 400 participants and leading experts in wind energy, solar energy and energy storage came together for Canada’s premier renewable energy event this week, as the Canadian Renewable Energy Association (CanREA) held its first-ever virtual Forum on November 9 and 10, 2020.
CanREA was pleased to welcome Sophie Brochu (President & CEO, Hydro-Québec), Michael Law (President & CEO, Alberta Electric System Operator), Mike Marsh (President & CEO, SaskPower) and Terry Young (Interim President & CEO, Independent Electricity System Operator) to the Forum for an important discussion on innovation and collaboration opportunities engendered by the rapid changes in technologies, policies and customer preferences that are disrupting the electricity sector.
The program also included special panels on Canada’s energy transition, where CanREA Board Chair Michelle Chislett (Managing Director, Canada and US Development, Northland Power) spoke with industry leaders and on Canada’s energy future, where sustainability leaders from Telus, RBC, Oxford Properties and the City of Edmonton discussed their strong interest in accessing renewable energy for their organizations.
CanREA thanks all presenters, attendees, exhibitors and sponsors for making the Forum a success. A special thank you to Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy Ltd. for supporting the event as a Presenting Partner, along with Goldwind Americas, who was the event’s Program Stream Partner.
