Burnaby wants to cement itself as a “clean energy hub” – and the local board of trade is all in.

The Burnaby Board of Trade is hosting the inaugural Clean Energy Summit on June 15, a daylong event featuring a range of experts and discussions on energy production, transportation and sustainable business practices.

Professionals from businesses all over the Lower Mainland, spanning a variety of industries, will talk climate action, sustainability and share their knowledge on the role of transportation in the clean energy transition.

“Energy is a massive topic – from homes and businesses, to cars and computers, to infrastructure and industry, energy is what makes these things work,” said Jeannette Jackson, CEO of Foresight Canada, in a video. Jackson will be moderating the transportation panel at the Clean Energy Summit.

“Transportation has the highest reliance on fossil fuels of any sector, and by using alternative energy sources like electricity, hydrogen and biofuels, we can diversify the energy mix and reduce dependencies on these sources,” she said.

MLA George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, and Burnaby Mayor Mike Hurley will also speak as distinguished guests.

Panels include:
