This gathering will describe the CEC initiative, support secured to-date, and how you can get involved and bring value to the process. The forum will conclude with discussions about the purpose, structure, functions and priorities of the CEC in preparation for its formal launch at the 2014 Renewable Energy Conference in April

If you would like to participate in the CEC forum on February 6th, please confirm your attendance with Frank Gallant () by Friday, January 31.
