Renewable Energy: Who's Got the Power?
Renewable energy systems are increasingly disrupting the energy industry and seem like a scalable solution to fossil-fuel dependency. But where will the energy come from?

Join a panel of experts for a roundtable discussion that explores the future of renewable energy over the next 20 years in Calgary and beyond.
