Over 400 wind, solar and biogas industry players expected at Ontario Feed-in Tariff Supply Chain Forum

Thursday, March 10th 2011 2:45:11pm

Media Release

TORONTO CANADA, MARCH 10, 2011 - Over 400 developers, manufacturers, service providers and scheme administrators are expected at the second Ontario Feed-in Tariff Supply Chain Forum on April 19-20 in Toronto.

This industry critical conference is a proven must attend event for renewable energy experts. Last year's event sold-out a week in advance and the April Forum is on track to do the same.  

"There was more information exchanged in these two days than at any other event since the launch of the FIT," says David Dunnison of Dunnison & Associates, who attended the first FIT forum.

The forum provides a much needed platform for wind, solar and biogas developers, manufacturers and suppliers to explore the tremendous opportunities created by North America's most ambitious feed-in tariff. It offers the very latest updates on manufacturing capacity, domestic content requirements, supply chain opportunities, and financing. It also covers the most critical questions facing FIT forum participants including updates on the province's transmission expansion plans and managing political uncertainty in the run-up to Ontario's election next October.

Over 60 speakers from top renewable energy manufacturers, developers and suppliers are confirmed on the agenda including representatives from Canadian Solar, Siemens, GE Energy, Vestas, Brookfield Asset Management, International Power Canada, Recurrent Energy, Enercon, Silfab, and Suncor Energy. Speakers also include representatives from the Ontario government and the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) which is administering the FIT program. SkyPower Limited is sponsoring a special breakfast session where OPA representatives will be taking questions.

The forum has a growing list of industry supporters including main sponsors Heliene and SunEdison as well as SkyPower Limited, Unirac, PCL Constructors Canada, Altas Tube, Navigant Consulting, Schiller, Schletter, Schneider and SunRise Power.

The event is also being supported by the Association of Power Producers of Ontario (APPrO), the AgriEnergy Producers' Association of Ontario, the Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA), the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA), the Canadian German Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the Green Energy Act Alliance, Hamilton Economic Development Corporation, Niagara Economic Development Office, and the Ontario Sustainable Energy Alliance (OSEA). Members and associates of these organisations can receive a discount on attendance.
