Sauder’s ISIS Research Centre is hosting a conference to share leading thinking on clean technology from leaders at the forefront of this burgeoning sector.

On January 30, 2014, the Clean Capital: Partnerships for Canada’s Clean Economy Conference  will highlight Canadian innovation in this fast-growing sector, and generate public and private partnerships to accelerate investment in the country’s clean economy.

Held at the Vancouver Convention Centre, high level conference speakers include:

  • Andy Baynes from Nest Laboratories, sold to Google on January 14 for $3.2 billion
  • Gregor Robertson, Mayor City of Vancouver to present on, "Creating an Innovation Economy for the City of Vancouver"
  • Michael Delage from General Fusion on the future of power generation
  • Nicholas Parker, Founder and Chairman of the Cleantech Group, to discuss the crucial role of clean technologies for Canada’s resource based economy.

The conference also includes the Clean Capital Showcase. Twenty Canadian clean tech CEOs will discuss their businesses with interested parties and share their personal experiences of growing a clean technology company in Canada.

“Our goals with Clean Capital are to promote the interests of the massively underserved but fast-growing clean tech sector in Canada. British Columbia in particular is a hotbed of companies who are dedicated to clean technology,” says Neil Thomson, Director of Clean Capital at ISIS Research Centre.

Thomson expects the conference to attract international investors, entrepreneurs and business leaders from the clean energy and clean technology industries, as well as public sector policy makers charged with growing Canada’s clean economy.
