The Atlantic Canada power landscape is entering an era of tremendous change. As New Brunswick prepares for competitive market opening on April 1, 2004, and Nova Scotia plans its next step towards open access, Canadian and US players alike are readying their strategies for the transition. What will be the impact of open access on utilities, municipalities and major industrials? What is the status of generation adequacy and reliability, and what is the outlook for price? How robust will the new markets be, and what degree of new infrastructure development will be required? Addressing these questions is key to ensuring your strategic edge in this very important time.

The Canadian Institute's Atlantic Power conference has been developed to meet the information needs of this rapidly changing marketplace. Learn from leading industry players and experts everything you need to know to succeed in a new competitive landscape. Whether you're a utility, generator, marketer, or end user you can't afford to miss critical information on:
*The initial experiences of buyers and sellers in New Brunswick's newly opened market
*Open access: what are the seams issues between the provinces and adjoining jurisdictions and how will they be addressed?
*The new dynamics of US/Canadian cross border power relations and how they will affect you
*Current market pricing trends: how do Atlantic Canada prices compare to New England?
*The outlook for generation adequacy: what would be the impact on New Brunswick's supply portfolio if assets are retired rather than refurbished?
*What are the mechanisms for getting new generation into the market? What other infrastructure may be required?
*The business case for renewables, cogeneration and geothermal energy in the new markets
