Electricity Transformation Canada 2020 Cancelled

EIN ETC 400

July 30, 2020

Hannover Fairs (Canada) and the Canadian Renewable Energy Association announced Electricity Transformation Canada 2020, Canada’s largest renewable energy and energy storage conference and exhibition, scheduled to take place November 10 – 12 in Toronto, Ontario, has been cancelled in response to the COVID-19 situation. Under current provincial guidelines, indoor gatherings of more than 50 people are not permitted and it is unclear when it will be safe for larger gatherings to proceed.

“This was a difficult decision, but it is the right one. While we were very excited to launch our inaugural event in 2020  and appreciate the strong interest shown by exhibitors, sponsors and thought leaders, the health and well-being of all participants and our staff remain our top priority,” says Larry Turner, President and CEO of Hannover Fairs (Canada). “We are nonetheless pleased to announce that we will now launch this event with Electricity Transformation Canada 2021, to be held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from November 17 – 19, 2021 and we look forward to welcoming participants from across Canada and around the globe to our event at that time.”

Electricity Transformation Canada will bring wind energy, solar energy, energy storage, and complementary technologies – from transportation electrification to smart grid and digitalization – all together in one landmark event.

“While COVID – 19 has resulted in the cancellation of Electricity Transformation Canada 2020, Canada’s electricity system continues to transform,” says Robert Hornung, President and CEO of the Canadian Renewable Energy Association. “As a result, the Canadian Renewable Energy Association will be hosting a virtual event that will examine the role of wind energy, solar energy, and energy storage in the transformation of electricity systems across Canada in November 2020. More information on this event will be forthcoming in September 2020, as part of our association’s comprehensive events program for 2020 – 2021.”
