2018 CCRE Kananaskis Annual Energy Leaders Roundtable

CCRE Annual Energy Leaders Roundtable-Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, Kananaski, Alberta

The Council for Clean and Reliable Energy and its partners welcomed executive thought leaders in the energy sector to the inaugural western Canada event held in Kananaskis, Alberta. This event gathered expert keynote and high caliber speakers, along with leaders in the energy industry for brief presentations providing the opportunity for open dialogue, a candid exchange of views, and networking amongst participants.

We were pleased to have Greg Lyle, President, Innovative Research Group and Deborah Yedlin, Chancellor, University of Calgary, deliver keynote addresses.

The keynote addresses and presentations included the following sessions:

  • Public Perceptions on Energy and their Impacts on Policy
  • Policy and Regulatory Frustration
  • Interprovincial Electricity and the National Grid
  • The Arc of Twenty Years Covering the Energy Sector
  • Getting to Yes – Enabling Energy Infrastructure in the Public Interest
  • Meeting Canada’s Climate Change Commitments
  • 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.
