January 27, 2012 – Confused by Ontario’s Feed-in-Tariff Program? Wonder no more, and make plans to attend the Ontario Feed-in Tariff Forum (April 3-4, Toronto, Ont.), of which Electrical Business is a proud partner.
The Ontario Feed-in Tariff Forum is an annual conference for FIT contract holders, developers, manufacturers, suppliers, service providers and government. This year’s event comes on the heels of the FIT program’s two-year review process, and offer the industry a first opportunity to network and discuss the outcomes of the review and the next steps for renewable energy in Ontario.
Representatives from the Ontario Power Authority, Ministry of Energy, Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Natural Resources have all confirmed their attendance, says Canadian Clean Energy Conferences (CCEC), the forum organizer.
In addition to key government and policy speakers, over 100 industry leaders in the solar, wind, hydro and bioenergy sectors have been added to the forum’s agenda, says CCEC, which breaks out into technology-specific streams on the second day.
The event is expected to attract over 500 renewable energy developers, manufacturers, suppliers and government representatives to discuss the impacts of the FIT review and the direction of renewable energy development and manufacturing in the province.
“The technology streams will allow developers, manufacturers and technology providers to discuss the issues specific to their industry in the context of the FIT program and renewable energy development in Ontario,” says Adrienne Baker, director of Canadian Clean Energy Conferences.
The forum has a growing list of industry supporters including Heliene, Siemens, RTONE and Power Advisory LLC, and continues to have cross-industry support with members of CanSIA, CanWEA, APPrO, OSEA, APAO, OWA, CanBIO and FPAC, who receive a 20% discount when registering.
