energy3: Canada’s Energy Conference 
October 16-18, 2019
Halifax, Nova Scotia 

energy3 is a three-day conference, trade exhibition and research forum focused on Canada’s energy industry, putting the spotlight on our strengths, challenges and opportunities. Marine renewable energy (MRE) will be a key element of energy3. Industry and researchers involved in the sector will be profiled in the larger energy context and make important connections with businesses, organizations, and government. The MRE industry has an opportunity to expand its reach in the broader energy sector, and we look forward to supporting the development of energy3 with a strong tidal, wave, and offshore wind focus.
