CanWEA Western Forum 2014: "Part of the Solution"

x

Join us in Calgary, Alberta on April 14-15, 2014 to explore the political, economic, social and environmental contexts for continued development of the wind energy industry in Western Canada. Forum sessions will provide perspectives from a broad range of stakeholders on achievements, business prospects and the winning conditions for sustainable growth of the wind energy industry in Western Canada.

Come and network with the wind energy industry at Western Canada’s Premier Wind Energy Event.

We are entering a new phase in the development of the country’s energy infrastructure. Thanks to government initiatives and timely private investment over the past decade, wind energy now has a solid foothold from coast to coast. Declining costs of wind energy combined with surging industrial energy demand in Western Canada present potential winning conditions for future growth. Yet provincial energy policies in Alberta and British Columbia do not yet see wind energy for what it is - a competitive source of new supply, able to meet a significant portion of the region’s new energy demand, and the only one which provides a solution for a carbon-constrained future. The case for wind energy in Western Canada has never been stronger in terms of competitiveness, reliability and fit with a carbon-constrained future – what steps can the industry take to ensure this potential is realized?
