Alberta is Energy.

Alberta Labour, Economic Development Alliance (EDA) of Southeast Alberta, and Medicine Hat College are proud to present the Southeast Alberta Energy Diversification Symposium taking place March 2 – 3, 2017. As part of a collaborative partnership, these partners conducted a study of the emerging renewable energy industry in Southeast Alberta (SE AB) and how this industry would impact both the regional economy and labour market. The findings of the “Southeast Alberta Energy Diversification Report: Our Region, Our Jobs, Our Community” will be shared at the conference.

Industry experts and municipal representatives will also explain from their experiences the impacts and opportunities for energy diversification, and cover topics such as:

  • the impacts of renewable energy projects on rural Alberta municipalities;
  • Alberta’s electricity sector;
  • the role of decentralized energy in SE AB;
  • developing a renewable energy workforce in SE AB;
  • potential opportunities associated with various renewable energy industries; and,
  • innovative projects and technologies in SE AB.
