Canada’s Wind Energy Industry Targets Growth and Opportunity at Fall Event

EIN 31 CS CanWEA 400

July 25, 2019

The wind energy industry is set to explore current and emerging opportunities to drive continued growth in the face of a rapidly advancing global energy transition when it gathers at Canada’s largest wind energy conference this Fall.

The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA), in partnership with Hannover Fairs Canada, have unveiled the program for the 35th Annual CanWEA Conference and Exhibition, to be held October 8-10, 2019, at the BMO Centre in Calgary, Alberta.

Over three days, business executives, technical experts, decision makers, and government representatives will highlight the key issues facing wind energy today and identify the innovative trends that will guide the future of clean energy growth.

Plenary sessions will focus on the big picture of Canada’s evolving electricity system and growing wind energy industry; navigating changing market and policy dynamics in Alberta; disruptive technologies and rapid innovation that are impacting Canada’s electric utilities; and the role of wind energy in supporting grid reliability. Concurrent educational sessions will dig into a range of pressing industry topics, including the possibilities for repowering projects, boosting operational strategies, traditional knowledge and Indigenous partnerships, wind and solar hybrid projects, the evolution of wind project siting, new revenue streams and the global transition to clean technology.

With more than 1,200 attendees representing a wide range of interests in wind energy, the conference tradeshow will provide exhibitors an unmatched opportunity to connect with North America’s foremost wind energy leaders and decision makers. With the plenary sessions adjacent to the tradeshow floor, it is the perfect venue for exhibitors to expand their network and generate leads, while earning recognition as a wind energy market participant.

Following on the heels of the impressive 2018 award winners, attendees can expect no less this year. Six prestigious CanWEA awards will be presented to visionary leaders and clean energy pioneers for their outstanding contributions to the Canadian wind industry, while CanWEA partner Women in Renewable Energy WiRE will present this year’s Wind Power Woman of Distinction Award.

Registration is now open for the 35th CanWEA Annual Conference and Exhibition and the program outline can be found at windenergyevent.ca.
