Event - Solar Canada Annual Conference & Exposition

Solar Canada Conference and Exhibition will take place May 8-9, 2019 at the BMO Centre, in Calgary, Alberta. This event is Canada's largest and most important solar energy conference and a must-attend event for solar energy professionals, stakeholders and advocates.

Calgary provides an excellent backdrop to discuss Canada’s clean energy future. With recent solar projects going forward at an average contracting price of less than five cents per kilowatt-hour, Alberta is leading the country with the lowest rates on solar energy.

"Utility-scale solar is now cost competitive with natural gas, and this is transformative for our industry," says John Gorman, CanSIA President & CEO. "Achieving Alberta’s 30 per cent by 2030 renewable electricity target has just become a lot more cost-effective. This sends a clear signal to energy consumers and governments across Canada that solar is a clean and low-cost energy option." 

Attendees will gain insights into Canada’s changing energy markets and policies; discover revolutionary research and technologies; network with solar innovators; and, receive updates from jurisdictions across Canada.


High-profile speakers including the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Federal Minister of Natural Resources and Rabia Ferroukhi, Acting Director of the Knowledge, Policy & Finance division at the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).

An expo hall that brings together the entire solar industry supply chain and includes educational sessions, case studies, a dedicated section for startup companies, electric cars and more.
