Welcome Reception — Sponsored by ENBRIDGE
Our welcome reception is a fantastic opportunity to meet new contacts and build relationships in a relaxed, informal setting.
This year’s reception will take place at the Big Four on the Calgary Stampede Grounds — one of Canada’s best-known venues, and a short walk from the Opening Plenary.
Join us on October 8 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., and help us launch this world-class conference in style!
At our keynote luncheons on October 9 and 10, wind energy experts will provide insight into the most important topics facing the wind industry.
Each luncheon is followed by a networking break, so they’re also a great place to connect with colleagues and learn best practices from leaders across the sector.
Disruptive Technologies – Sponsored by ENGIE
Our first luncheon, sponsored by ENGIE Canada, on October 9 (from 12 p.m. to 1:30) will investigate how disruptive technologies and rapid innovation are changing Canada’s electric utilities.
It can be overwhelming to keep up with the pace and speed of development, but this session will provide firsthand knowledge from senior utilities executives on industry trends, case studies, utilities responses and emerging best practices.
Discover the most pressing, most impactful, and most promising disruptors and opportunities for today’s utilities … and tomorrow’s.
How to keep the lights on with wind energy: It’s easier than you think!
At our second keynote luncheon (October 10 from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.), we’ll explore the issue of wind energy reliability.
Science continues to demonstrate that more wind energy can be integrated into many electricity systems around the world, but it can be difficult to explain this phenomenon in simple terms.
As you know, this hot topic is a pivotal discussion point for the broader clean energy transition — and it’s crucial that we understand how to communicate it.
This panel is packed with technical experts who will break down the role of wind energy in supporting grid reliability. You’ll leave with a full tool box of information to respond to wind reliability questions with confidence.
Happy Hour – Sponsored by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy Limited
This popular event is the ideal place to make connections as you unwind with exhibitors, speakers and show attendees at the end of a day packed with learning and discussion.
Enjoy some great beverages and swap business cards! Happy Hour runs from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on October 9.
