The 2018 CCRE Annual Energy Leaders Roundtable has become an essential forum for thought leaders to consider the critical energy issues of today and tomorrow. The Roundtable built on its 6-year success by bringing together speakers and leaders in the energy industry for brief presentations that provided open dialogue and a candid exchange of views and networking amongst participants.
We were pleased to have Matt Jamieson, President and CEO of the Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation, Greg Lyle, President, Innovative Research Group and Bruce Campbell, Member, Ontario Energy Board Modernization Review Panel, deliver keynote addresses.
The keynote addresses and presentations included the following sessions:
- Lessons Learned from an Indigenous Perspective on Energy in Ontario
- Public Opinion and the Energy Sector
- Ontario’s Energy Future: Policy and Expectations
- Governance of Regulatory Agencies
- Modifying Previous Government’s Energy Policies: Options for Action in the Public Interest
- An Update from the OEB Modernization Review Panel
- Canada’s Competitiveness in World Energy Markets
- Politics and the Energy Sector
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.
