The heat is being turned up in the BC power sector and preparations are being made for new investment, increased inter-jurisdictional trade and the implementation of new energy guidelines.

Are you ready to benefit from these exciting new energy developments?

While BC is not undergoing massive electricity reform, significant changes are being made to the power sector to encourage more competition in the development of new power supply. But the cost-effective development of new power generation presents multiple challenges. Players in this field need to stay on top of regulatory requirements and adapt to changes in rate design and tariffs in order to integrate successfully into this system. At the same time, investment is needed for aging transmission systems and for enhanced cross-border trade.

The Canadian Institute has developed this conference to provide you with the most up-to-date information you need to make sound business decisions in this dynamic sector. A leading faculty of experts and industry leaders has been assembled to share the latest on government energy initiatives, project development and business opportunities including:
*Incentives for investment in generation and transmission
*Overcoming the major challenges faced by independent power producers to integrate to the system
*Prospects for the building of new generation capacity
*Feasibility of a competitive market in BC
*Analysis of transmission capacity for access to export markets
*Current export trends and how they affect competition between exporters
*BCUC rate hearings and the benefits and challenges of stepped rates
*Progress in the development of alternative and traditional energy sources
*Issues around environmental and land use in new power development

Don't miss this opportunity to network with peers and get up to speed on how recent and upcoming changes will affect your business strategy.
