Alberta Climate Summit 2017 @ BMO Centre, Hall E | Seizing Innovation and Opportunity in a Low-Carbon Economy This year is the 3rd annual Alberta Climate Summit – the event for innovative thinking and knowledge sharing on energy and climate in Alberta. This event will showcase the innovation and opportunities around clean energy that are already underway in Alberta. The summit will feature speakers and participants from government, oil and gas industry, electricity industry, investors, innovators, new entrants into Alberta’s economy, labour groups, First Nations, environmental and other civil society organizations. Once again, the event will bring together 500+ thought leaders from industry, government, environmental NGOs, and community stakeholders to learn from success stories, identify opportunities and challenges, and explore solutions related to Alberta’s clean energy future. Areas of focus will include energy efficiency, renewable energy, clean technology and innovation, methane control, climate finance, and Indigenous energy solutions. The Climate Summit showcases successes underway in Alberta, informs and connects decision makers, and inspires participants to play an active role in Alberta’s transition to a clean energy future. On top of promising stories from within Alberta, we will draw from best practices in other Canadian and international jurisdictions. See more information at our website.
