Royal Roads University will be the site of a special GreenTech Exchange forum on January 26, 2012, acting as the launching platform for the GreenTech Exchange Vancouver Island debut. Since March, 2009 GreenTech Exchange (GTEx) has organized regular networking and learning events in Metro Vancouver at the SFU Vancouver Campus featuring presentations on innovation and solutions in green and clean technologies, pitches from greentech entrepreneurs and networking with company principals, professionals, investors, government representatives, academics, students and more. The forum offers an exciting gathering place for the local innovation business community to connect.
Vancouver Island is home to a growing number of companies, organizations, research centres, demonstration projects and validation sites in the green and clean technologies domain. Timing is ripe to highlight these capabilities and expertise in a focused forum held on a regular basis. At this inaugural event, Sea Breeze Power Corp. President and CEO Paul Manson and Manager of Wind Development James Griffiths will share their insights regarding select renewable energy projects for the Capital Regional District and Vancouver Island, including the Cape Scott Wind Farm. These forward-looking projects should be of interest to people in this field.
Building on the momentum of the current energy initiatives in British Columbia, GreenTech Exchange is delighted to showcase technology innovation that supports clean energy solutions and is environmentally friendly. There is high growth potential for this industry sector. Timely forums such as the GreenTech Exchange help to galvanize the collective momentum, accelerating the commercialization and market access of these solutions as well as cultivating collaboration, trade, investment and partnership opportunities.
