Green energy will be in focus at the third annual Community Power Conference, hosted by the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association (OSEA) on November 14 and 15. Held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and featuring a who’s who of the green energy market, the event will explore how “Green Energy 2.0″ will shape Ontario’s future.

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.

OSEA’s third annual conference will feature a critical look at the FIT review, Green Energy Ontario 2.0, as well as practical training on how to drive community-led and community-commercial project partnerships.
