Ethical Markets Media correspondent and sustainability research coordinator Timothy Nash will be covering the Renewable Energy Finance Forum – Canada, 5 April 2011 – 6 April 2011, in Toronto.
Bringing together financiers and developers, the 2nd REFF Canada provides an opportunity to meet and hear from leading Canadian and international experts as they focus their attention on the development of renewable energy in Canada.
Canada continues to move forward in developing an extensive portfolio of renewable energy projects. Ontario’s Green Energy and Economy Act has now been in operation for over a year. As a result, it is no longer a question of how popular the scheme and the demand for contracts has been but what is the timeline for projects being developed?
Speakers include Tony Anderson, Chief Financial Officer, Northland Power; Geraint Breeze, Executive Director, Project Finance & Infrastructure, CIBC; Natalia Hahn, National Sustainability Manager, IKEA Canada; Janice Larson, Director, Renewable Energy Development, BC Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources; Louisa Pratt, Conference Producer, Euromoney Energy Events; Michael Switt, Managing Director, Project Finance, Manulife; Alejandro Salvador, Chief Financial Officer, Acciona Energy North America; Nicole Tucker, Senior Manager, Supply Chain Management, Energy Sector, Siemens Canada Limited and others.
REFF Canada is the only event in Canada that focuses purely on the financing of renewable energy projects, providing working examples of the investments in renewable energy which Ethical Markets Media is tracking with the Green Transition Scoreboard®, expected to report over $2 trillion in private investments in green technologies worldwide since 2007.
