Generate 2018

Join the dialogue with Clean Energy BC as we host our 16th annual conference, Generate 2018. Experience a refreshing lineup of clean energy expertise in dynamic plenary sessions, exhibitions, short courses, field trips and networking opportunities. This signature event is a forum for discussion and engagement between our diverse community of Independent Power Producers, First Nations and government representatives, utilities, consultants, contractors and suppliers.

Our global economy is being fueled by fresh innovation, renewable energy technology, and vast opportunities in the green industry. BC can become a global leader by growing its economy, keeping energy prices low, creating jobs and increasing resilience to climate impacts. There has never been a better time for low-cost, private-sector clean energy power producers to ensure that the province delivers on its climate change commitments. We could very well be on the precipice of a renewed clean energy revolution in BC! Join us in Vancouver for Generate 2018 Transformation through Electrification.
