The green energy sector in Ontario has been threatened by uncertainty in recent months due to the provincial election and the highly anticipated Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) review. Developers, manufactures, government and investors are concerned about what may happen to the industry, their projects and businesses. Residents and communities are concerned whether clean air and water, newfound well paying jobs, local project ownership and hope, will be yanked from underneath them.  Ontario's green energy sector is entering its next phase and it is yet unknown what this new chapter will look like and how industry participants and communities will operate in the new climate.

Join the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association for its third annual conference to hear about and discuss the FIT review, Green Energy Ontario 2.0, and practical training on how to drive community-led and community-commercial project partnerships.

And while you are here rubbing shoulders and building your knowledge and network, join the industry's sustainable energy champions and Ontario's top chefs at the Steam Whistle Brewery as we throw the sector's best and most exclusive social event, the Green Connection on Monday, November 14th.

While attending the conference be sure to tour our Power Networking Centre trade show, held in partnership with the Association of Power Producers of Ontario.
