Solar West

May 9 to 11, 2017 - Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Solar West

Solar West is part of our three show portfolio which gives you the chance to discover opportunities in all of Canada’s most important solar energy markets. It is the leading conference for solar policy and market trends in Western Canada.

Opportunities and challenges abound in the Canadian renewable energy market, especially with new government policies and increased international cooperation in battling climate change. Canada plays a leading role in renewable energy in North America, and western provinces are expected to play a key role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

When you attend Solar West you’re getting leading industry insight on business development opportunities, public opinion and public policy. The first day of conference programming will focus on the “Concept”, which includes topics such as public opinion & public policy. The second day of conference programming will focus on “Implementation”, which will include topics such as business case and integration.

Key questions addressed will include:

  • What are the benefits of solar energy to Western Canada and are they well understood?
  • What is the status of public policy for solar energy and is it developing favourable for solar energy?
  • How is the business case for solar energy evolving in Western Canada and when will market segments mature?
  • What are the key regulations that govern solar energy technology and how can industry best manage compliance?
