Annual Energy Leaders Roundtable-Hockley Valley, 2019

The Council for Clean and Reliable Energy and its partners welcomed leaders in the energy sector to the 2019 CCRE Energy Leaders Roundtable held in Penticton, British Columbia. The event brought together leaders for an open dialogue, a candid exchange of views, and networking.

The keynote addresses and panel presentations included sessions on the following:

  • The East to West Perspective on Energy
  • Public Perceptions on Energy and their Impacts on Policy
  • Carbon Emissions – Measurement and Pricing
  • Canada’s Nuclear Advantage
  • First Nations and Infrastructure Development
  • Regulatory Environment and Investment Outlook
  • Following the Money
  • 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.
