RE+ Events, Canadian Renewable Energy Association and Hannover Fairs partner for Electricity Transformation Canada

Ottawa, September 20, 2022 — RE+ Events, Hannover Fairs and the Canadian Renewable Energy Association (CanREA) are proud to announce their recent partnership for Electricity Transformation Canada (ETC), Canada’s premier renewable energy conference and exhibition.

This 12 months’s ETC will happen October 26-28, on the Metro Toronto Convention Center, Toronto, Ontario.

“Canada has ambitious goals, to cut back greenhouse-gas emissions by 40% from 2005 levels by 2030, and to succeed in net-zero emissions by 2050. It will mean radical, rapid transformation for our energy system. Luckily, the wind, solar and energy storage industries are up for the challenge,” said Robert Hornung, President and CEO of the Canadian Renewable Energy Association.

ETC will highlight the need of rapidly expanding and accelerating the deployment of wind energy, solar energy and energy storage, and its integration into Canada’s electricity system, to support national greenhouse-gas emission-reduction objectives.

“ETC is a crucial platform for the Canadian clean energy market. We’re proud to support CanREA and ETC’s mission to create a sustainable, modern electricity system in Canada,” said Stephen Miner, President & CEO, RE+ Events.

This three-day event provides a platform for renewable energy leaders to network, collaborate and move the industry forward, showcasing the perfect wind, solar, and energy-storage solutions from distributors, engineers, financiers, installers and manufacturers.

“Wind and solar energy will play a key role within the energy transition. Our partnership with CanREA and RE+ Events will ensure ETC facilitates Canada’s goal to attain net-zero by 2050,” said Bernd Rohde, Managing Director, Hannover Fairs México.

ETC was developed by the Canadian Renewable Energy Association (CanREA), in partnership with Hannover Fairs. The addition of RE+ Events to this existing partnership will contribute to even greater success in 2022 and beyond.

Prospective exhibitors are invited to book space. Registration is currently open.
