OTTAWA, ON, June 15, 2021 /CNW/ – WaterPower Canada today announced its annual Canadian Waterpower Week will be held virtually from October 6 to 8, 2021. The Conference will explore hydropower’s evolving role in our clean-energy mix as we build toward net-zero emissions in Canada.
More than 400 industry stakeholders, representing Canada, U.S. and abroad, will navigate the key issues and opportunities facing the sector. Over three days of programming, attendees will gain exclusive insights and network with key industry stakeholders, including decision-makers from hydropower generators, senior executives, supply chain experts, and representatives from government, academia and think tanks.
