About the Alberta Energy Efficiency and Innovation Summit

The Alberta Energy Efficiency Alliance (AEEA) and the Smart Sustainable Resilient Infrastructure Association (SSRIA) are partners in bringing together over 200 leaders for the province’s largest two-day conference, dedicated to advancing the adoption of energy efficiency and innovative solutions to reduce the carbon footprint of the buildings sector.

This year’s Summit will provide attendees with a forum to collaborate, learn, network, and gain insight into the latest trends in energy efficiency deployment, and innovative technology, products and processes for buildings of all types. How buildings and the utility system interact will also be prominently featured throughout the Summit.
