The third CCRE Annual Energy Leaders Roundtable was held at the Hockley Valley Resort from April 22 to 24, 2015. We were pleased to have had the participation of thought leaders from the energy sector and high calibre keynote speakers, presenters and participants that offered stimulating outcomes from the various sessions.
We were pleased to have had the Hon. Michael D. Harris, Senior Business Advisor, Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP, Premier of Ontario 1995 – 2002, and Greg Lyle, President, Innovative Research Group, deliver keynote addresses.
The CCRE Members facilitated presentations that led to open discussion following each session. The keynote addresses and presentations included the following sessions:
- Public Opinion and the Energy Sector
- Aboriginal Relations in Energy Sector Development
- Business Risk in Regulated Infrastructure
- Distributed Energy and the Grid
- The Politics of Energy
A Summary Report of Proceedings from this event, that reflects the outcomes of the discussions is available to download.
The Council is a group of volunteers who have an interest in promoting open debate about energy issues. We do not represent a particular interest group and attempt to bring together a broad range of stakeholders who share an interest in promoting good governance and public policy for Canada’s energy sector.
