Environment Journal is proud to present the following events:
EnviroExchange – This important digital discussion, which is free an interactive, will focus on the major transformation taking place in the clean energy sector in Canada. Some say the energy sector is expected to change more in the decade than it has in the past century. Industry experts will explain how clean energy projects are already transforming the grid. The panel will also explore the path forward, the challenges to overcome in order to meet climate action targets, and the size of the opportunity for renewable energy systems, with reference to new and emerging projects and initiatives across the country.
