The global shift to renewable energy is underway and international attention has focused on deployment in developing nations. As countries in sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Latin America continue to grow in population and GDP, so have their energy demands. These countries are in a unique position to leapfrog over traditional energy sources and incorporate renewables directly into their growing infrastructure. Significant potential exists for the construction of diverse power grids, with biomass, hydropower, wind and solar energy. The opportunity to deploy other green technologies is immense, as water filtration, cold storage and agricultural technologies will play a large role in further developing communities.
Vancouver is home to several R&D projects and SMEs with the capacity to serve in this global transition. The projects are in a unique position to help create low carbon economies, stable job opportunities, and better quality of life in these areas. Join us November 25th to discuss various technologies that could help solve the energy demand in developing nations, and the challenges and opportunities that surround market access.
