  • Register Marine Renewables Canada 2017 Annual Conference November 8-9, 2017, Ottawa, Ontario

    A time to lead:
    Advancing Canada’s marine renewable energy industry

    As investment in clean energy begins to outpace fossil fuels and governments develop policies to facilitate that energy transition, new opportunities are emerging for the marine renewable energy sector.

    At the same time, marine renewable energy in Canada has been progressing, achieving milestones and industry “firsts.” The question now is – how do we ensure that marine renewable energy continues to progress, building a new industry and playing an important role in Canada’s – and the world’s – new energy mix.

    This year’s Marine Renewables Canada Annual Conference will explore the path forward for marine renewable energy. It will examine what the strategy going forward could look like and how the growing focus and priority on renewables and cleantech by society, investors, and governments will play a role.

    Key features of the conference will include:

    • Highlights on Canadian achievements, milestones, and progress by industry leaders
    • Insight on strategies, policies, and actions to accelerate sector development
    • Identification of partnership and investment opportunities to support marine renewable energy projects
    • Opportunities and progress in wave, river current, and tidal energy research, innovation, and development
    • Updates on global marine renewable energy market opportunities and challenges
    • Insights on future energy trends and policies that could impact the sector
    • Multiple networking opportunities to meet leaders and experts from business, government, and academia that will help build connections and support emerging industry needs.

    2017 Conference Sessions – will cover a range of topics over two days:

    • Building Momentum – Milestones & progress across Canada
    • A growing market for small-scale solutions
    • Realizing the supply chain opportunity
    • International perspective: Successes and challenges in leading and emerging markets
    • Developing strategic partnerships for sector advancement
    • De-risking marine renewable energy through demonstration, research, and innovation
    • Ensuring responsible and sustainable development
    • On the horizon

    **Speakers and conference details will be updated on an on-going basis….check back often.

    INDUSTRY SHOWCASE

    The Industry Showcase will be located in the Governor General I (Level 4) room at the Westin Ottawa – this area is located just next to the main session room (Governor General II/III) and will also host all refreshment and lunch breaks.

    Cost to exhibit is $750.00 + tx and includes: 8’x8’ space (just space – no structure or pipe & drape being used), table and chairs, power & wifi
    ***The Industry Showcase registration also includes one industry showcase pass – that allows access for one person and includes all refreshment breaks, lunches and the reception.  It DOES NOT include the session – you would have to register as a delegate for that.  Additional Industry showcase passes can be purchased for $75 (basically just to cover the cost of food).

    The Floor plan for the Industry Showcase will be available soon.  Placement will work on first come, first serve.
