The one-hour virtual event was opened by Scott Stanners, executive director at BC Bioenergy Network, and inspired by comments from last year’s winners: Xiaotao Tony Bi (UBC Clean Energy Research Centre), Robert Pinchuk (Parkland Corporation) and Dave Schick (Canadian Fuels Association).

After the presentation of the awards, the recipients shared an acknowledgment speech on the topic of bioenergy. Ralohn Hunt with BC Bioenergy Network hosted a thought-provoking trivia session, and surprise special guests Ashley Callister with CICE and Tess delivered an extraordinary bioenergy-themed musical performance.
