November 20, 2015 – Earlier this week, Linda Bertoldi—a senior partner in Borden Ladner Gervais LLP’s Toronto office—became the recipient of APPrO’s 2015 Hedley Palmer Award, which was presented to her at the 27th annual Canadian Power Conference. Congratulations!
“Through her work, Linda [photo centre] has caused key energy players from different subsectors—including generators, local distribution companies, consumers, investors and policy makers—to appreciate each other’s concerns… an essential part of the process for addressing complex issues that, inevitably, have impacts across the sectors,” noted Dave Butters, president of the Association of Power Producers of Ontario (photo right).
Bertoldi has advised developers, lenders and investors in power projects across Canada, says APPrO, including wind, solar, hydro, biomass, natural gas, cogeneration and district energy projects. She also has experience advising municipal electric utilities and their owners on governance, financing, and mergers and acquisitions.
The Hedley Palmer Award recognizes an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the Ontario power industry, and has been given to a different individual each year since 1989. According to APPrO, it is the highest honour bestowed annually in the power generation business in Canada.
