Atlantic Canada’s Energy Future - Session 1: Exploring our Region’s Energy Future

Start: Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at 10:00

End: Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at 11:00

Canada has set an ambitious target to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This is already having an impact here in Atlantic Canada. Managing this transformation while leveraging our traditional energy assets is critical to supporting the COVID-19 economic recovery process.

APEC and the Atlantica Centre for Energy are co-hosting a free webinar series that will explore Atlantic Canada’s energy future.
