Established in 2011, the SmartGrid Canada conference has grown to become the key event for the smart grid industry in Canada.
As an industry association dedicated to advancing smart grid for the benefit of Canadians, we have taken great pride in producing a high quality conference that is focused on great speakers and a relevant program. We consult with our utility, industry and academic members to understand what is the pressing issue of the year and use our connections within the industry to bring you insight from leaders in Canada, the United States and abroad.
In 2013, we partnered with the conference producer Smart Grid Roadshow to bring together the multiple smart grid related events in Canada. By consolidating our smart grid events into a single premiere event, we can offers delegates and sponsors the best opportunity to connecting with the industry,
As we are a not-for-profit, we put the sponsorship money and attendance fees directly into the event. We select the best venue we can find and use the conference as an opportunity to show the industry our hospitality. Any profits go into doing more for the industry – research, advocacy and information sharing.
Now that smart grid is entering a state of maturity, our conference is looking to provide its audience with real-world learning from smart grid implementations both in Canada and around the world. SmartGrid Canada is hosting multiple inbound trade delegations from Europe, Asia and the Americas giving delegates an opportunity to understand new perspectives.
The conference will also be the platform from which we publish our 6th annual Smart Grid Consumer Research. This research has become the benchmark in the industry for understanding the customer and how we can engage them in the modernization of the electricity system.
We hope to see you in Toronto this September.
