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 new industry event dedicated to exploring the opportunities and challenges for wind energy, solar energy, energy storage and other complementary technologies.
Launching in 2020, the event will be called “Electricity Transformation Canada.” It will be held Nov. 9-12, 2020, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
“Electricity Transformation Canada will bring together stakeholders who produce and use Canada’s diverse renewable energy resources,” says 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.”
“Clean and renewable energy sources, like wind and solar, are delivering low-cost, scalable and flexible solutions for Canadian consumers and businesses that are increasingly demanding clean, affordable and renewable sources of power,” says Wesley Johnston, president and CEO of CanSIA. “The creation of a single event is in line with the massive transformation taking place within the renewable energy sector that is changing how electricity is generated, managed, distributed and used.”
“Electricity Transformation Canada will be the epicenter for charting the path to an expanded role for clean and renewable electricity, providing a meeting place where all stakeholders can gather, and work together, to create opportunity and lead Canada’s energy transformation,” adds Larry Turner, president and CEO of Hannover Fairs (Canada). “Our customers have been asking us to consolidate and strengthen our Canadian energy events, and that’s exactly what we are giving them with this new launch.”
