In conjunction with the SPARK Conference, Emissions Reduction Alberta (ERA), GLOBE and The Delphi Group, supported by Energy Efficiency Alberta (EEA) and Foresight Cleantech Accelerator, hosted a breakfast of key stakeholders from the Alberta cleantech ecosystem with an interest in scaling and growing cleantech companies. Approximately 30 representatives from funding agencies, cleantech companies, government, accelerators, financial institutions, cleantech industry associations, research organizations and corporate partners participated.
In what turned out to be one of the most popular sessions at GLOBE Forum 2018, political leaders from BC, Washington, Oregon and California came together to discuss The Pacific Coast Collaborative – an initiative focused on building a sustainable future that works for the people of the West Coast. The panel discussed approaches to tech, clean energy, job creation and trade among four jurisdictions that are on the cutting edge of sustainability.
