Zero 2014

Apr 15 2014 (All day) - Apr 17 2014 (All day)

Zero 2014 is hosted in partnership by the Climate Change and Emissions Management (CCEMC) Corporation and the City of Edmonton.

Reduction of the world's greenhouse gas emissions is arguably the greatest challenge of our age–a challenge that is escalating as the world's energy demand continues to grow.

Zero 2014 is a conference for leaders and innovators focused on driving the transition to a low-carbon future. At Zero 2014, the CCEMC and the City of Edmonton are bringing together forward-thinking municipalities and leaders from science, policy, clean technology, industry and government to address the shared goals of lowering our carbon impact and promoting greater awareness of the emissions reduction and energy challenges we are facing both here in Edmonton and across the planet.

While these challenges seem daunting, there are also tremendous opportunities for communities and innovators to embrace the challenges, and develop and deploy emissions-reduction solutions. The City of Edmonton, other leading municipalities, innovators and participants in the clean-tech sector are already responding in timely, innovative and pragmatic ways that will result in a different energy future.

Held in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Zero 2014 will:

  • Update delegates on the state of climate-change science.
  • Examine leading-edge policies, programs and innovation that are working successfully in communities and businesses around the world.
  • Present new ways of thinking about and approaching the climate-change challenge.
  • Explore Alberta's role as a leader in the clean technology and energy-efficiency revolution.
  • Profile game changing technologies and open innovation.

This three-day conference will also feature the Round 1 Finalists from the Climate Change and Emissions Management (CCEMC) Corporation Grand Challenge, which profiles innovators and organizations from around the world who are competing for up to CAD$35 million in funding for innovative technology that can convert CO2 emissions into new carbon-based products and markets.
