Ontario Geothermal Association Conference set for late February

January 26, 2018

The Ontario Geothermal Association (OGA) is inviting industry members, policy makers and stakeholders to its upcoming annual conference. The association’s conference will take place at The Westin Toronto Airport hotel from February 27 to 28 in Toronto, Ontario.

”We expect this year’s conference to draw a greater number of delegates due to the Ontario Government’s commitment to combatting climate change through investments in low carbon heating and cooling technologies in the form of unprecedented industry rebates,” says Jim Bolger, president, OGA. ”This year’s agenda reflects the infectious energy and enthusiasm emanating from the geo-exchange industry today.”

Conference keynote speakers are set to include:

• Chris Ballard, Minister of Ontario Environment and Climate Change
• Glen Murray, former Minister of Ontario Environment and Climate Change
• Jim Sanders, President, Enbridge Gas Distribution

In addition to the speakers, conference topics will pull from a range of subjects including The European Heat Pump Association (EHPA) DecarbHeat Initiative; the Public Relations and Edelman’s Trust Barometer: navigating through societal and economic concerns and building credibility in today’s climate; and CanmetEnergy and NRCan’s scientific research studies on ground source heat pump technologies.

The OGA is a not-for-profit organization representing geothermal energy system designers, drillers, installers, equipment manufacturers and distributors to advance Ontario’s geothermal heating and cooling industry.
