“The next 10 years are critical to advance the projects and investments that will be needed to achieve Canada’s Paris Agreement climate targets, and to build toward net zero from there. This Conference for Canada’s original and largest clean and renewable energy industry will explore the major competitive advantages that hydropower presents as we phase out coal, increase clean power production, and advance electrification and green hydrogen. Join us at this milestone event. It will be an unparalleled opportunity to navigate this path together.” said Patrick Bateman, Interim President, WaterPower Canada.
