March 14-16, 2012
Vancouver, BC, Canada
Venue: Vancouver Convention Centre
GLOBE 2012 will be the 12th event in one of the world’s largest and longest-running series dedicated to the business of the environment. Every two years, business leaders, corporate executives, NGOs, and government policymakers from around the world gather in Vancouver for three days of thought-leading sessions presented by world-renowned sustainability experts, for the opportunity to see leading-edge environmental innovations, and to participate in unparalleled global networking opportunities.
Join the discussion on the ‘Economics of Energy’ – Despite massive investment and growth in renewable energy and clean technology in recent years, fossil fuels will continue to power our energy needs for the foreseeable future. The future energy mix will depend largely on supply and demand factors that will be influenced by resource availability, technology pricing and innovation, and public policy and geopolitical factors – which all form part of the ‘Economics of Energy’. The world’s leading experts on energy will discuss the key technologies and energy sources that will power our future, and provide insights on how emerging investment opportunities can be realized.
