2017 Technology Innovation & Policy Forum

2017 Technology Innovation & Policy Forum - Disruptive Innovation over the Wires: Business Models for Success - November 9, 2017


The Council for Clean & Reliable Energy (CCRE) in partnership with the University of Waterloo, a leading innovation centre, is hosting its second Annual Technology Innovation and Policy Forum on Thursday, November 9, 2017. Join us for this important event, bringing together policy makers, technology innovators, leading researchers and entrepreneurs. We address the alignment of climate policies with the need to accelerate cost-effective integration of emerging distributed resources at the distribution level.

The goal of the forum is to highlight the role of emerging disruptive technologies on the distribution sector business model arising from embedded distributed generation and storage on a large scale within the existing distribution network. The forum comprises panel presentations from leading industry, government experts and academics with extensive opportunities for networking. The event is a show-case of state-of-the-art technologies and emerging and innovations that highlight the potential for shaping the next generation smart energy solutions.

Please watch for our next announcement for online registration, sponsorship and innovation showcase opportunities, and the event program.
