Join us in Calgary, Alberta on April 14-15, 2014 to explore business prospects and learn more about the political, economic, social and environmental opportunities and challenges facing the wind energy industry in Western Canada. Forum sessions will provide perspectives from a broad range of stakeholders on the actions required in each province to ensure the 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 over the past decade, wind energy now has a solid foothold from coast to coast. The cost of wind energy has come down significantly in the past few years. Western Canada has surging industrial energy demand due to rapid expansion of the oil sands and natural gas sectors. Yet provincial policies in Alberta and BC do not yet see wind energy for what it is - a competitive source of new supply, able to meet a significant portion of this new energy demand, and the only one which provides a solution for our carbon-constrained future. The case for wind energy in Western Canada has never been stronger in terms of competitiveness, reliability and fitness for the future – but it is incumbent on us to realize this potential.
