For Solar Canada 2019 about 2.200 attendees and up to 100 exhibitors are expected, representing the entire supply chain for photovoltaic equipment
Solar Canada gives the opportunity to discover revolutionary research and technologies, network with solar innovators and receive updates from jurisdictions across Canada.

With recent solar projects going forward at an average contracting price of less than five cents per kilowatt-hour, Alberta is leading the country with the lowest rates on solar energy. Calgary provides an excellent backdrop to discuss Canada’s clean energy future.

“Utility-scale solar is now cost competitive with natural gas, and this is transformative for our industry,” says John Gorman, CanSIA President & CEO. “Achieving Alberta’s 30 per cent by 2030 renewable electricity target has just become a lot more cost-effective. This sends a clear signal to energy consumers and governments across Canada that solar is a clean and low-cost energy option.”

Event highlights include:
1) High-profile speakers including the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Federal Minister of Natural Resources and Rabia Ferroukhi, Acting Director of the Knowledge, Policy & Finance division at the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).
2) An expo hall that brings together the entire solar industry supply chain and includes educational sessions, case studies, a dedicated section for start-up companies, electric cars and more.
3) Networking events that connect industry stakeholders and encourage business development and partnerships.

Solar Canada is co-organized by Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA) and Hannover Fairs (Canada), a subsidiary of Hannover, Germany’s Deutsche Messe. Canadian Solar Industries Association is a national trade association that represents the solar energy industry throughout Canada. Since 1992, CanSIA has worked to develop a strong, efficient, ethical and professional Canadian solar energy industry with capacity to provide innovative solar energy solutions and to play a major role in the global transition to a clean-energy future.
