Alberta and Saskatchewan Renewable Energy Summit event banner

The opportunity to grow the renewable energy sector in Alberta has arrived. The drive towards sustainable economic growth, along with a new Climate Leadership Plan introduced by the Government of Alberta in November 2015, will create a wide range of opportunities in Alberta’s renewable energy market.

That’s why Calgary Economic Development is supporting and participating in the Alberta and Saskatchewan Renewable Energy Finance Summit taking place June 2-3 in Calgary.

The Summit focuses on driving renewables projects and finance success under the new renewables procurement strategy being developed by the Province and AESO.  It will bring together key government and system operators with renewables lenders, developers and suppliers for networking and critical market updates. 

In alignment with Building on our Energy: The 10-year Economic Strategy for Calgary, it is critical we build on our position as a global energy centre to take a leadership role in the low carbon economy- with renewables being one of the key solutions in the global energy transition.
