Jan. 24, 2012 - The speaker line-up for this year's Ontario Feed-in Tariff Forum has been announced today with the province's key government and FIT policy administrators confirmed to speak on April 3-4 in Toronto.

Jan. 24, 2012 – The Ontario Feed-in Tariff Forum (April 3-4, Toronto) is the annual, must-attend conference for FIT contract holders, developers, manufacturers, suppliers, service providers and government. This year's event will come on the heels of the FIT program's two-year review process and offer the industry a first opportunity to network and discuss the outcomes of the review and the next steps for renewable energy in Ontario. Representatives from the Ontario Power Authority, the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Natural Resources have all confirmed their attendance.

In addition to key government and policy speakers, over 100 industry leaders in the solar, wind, hydro and bioenergy sectors have been added to the forum's agenda which breaks out into technology specific streams on the second day. "The technology streams will allow developers, manufacturers and technology providers to discuss the issues specific to their industry in the context of the FIT program and renewable energy development in Ontario," says Adrienne Baker, Director of Canadian Clean Energy Conferences, which organizes the OFIT Forum.

The event will attract over 500 renewable energy developers, manufacturers, suppliers and government representatives to discuss the impacts of the FIT review and the direction of renewable energy development and manufacturing in the province. The forum has a growing list of industry supporters including Heliene, Siemens, RTONE and Power Advisory LLC and continues to have strong cross-industry support with members of CanSIA, CanWEA, APPrO, OSEA, APAO, OWA, CanBIO and FPAC receiving an additional 20% discount when registering.
