British Columbia generates dependable and environmentally friendly energy, while also exporting its valuable resources to international markets. The province is gaining recognition as a frontrunner in clean technologies. In a world marked by increased geopolitical uncertainties and a pressing drive towards achieving net-zero goals, Western Canada has the potential to guide and ensure the sustainability of energy generation, distribution, and usage.

GVBOT’s annual Energy Forum, presented by Bennett Jones, will spotlight Western Canada's position in the worldwide clean tech and energy market.

Speakers to be announced.
