Transformation Underway:

The 26th Anniversary Canadian Power Conference and Networking Centre

November 18 and 19, 2014

Metro Toronto Convention Centre, South Building, Toronto, Ontario



The electric power industry is once again facing unstoppable change. The interaction of new technology, new market participants, and new regulatory rules will shape the restructuring ahead. In a sector that thrives on both innovation and long-term stability, little will remain untouched. The APPrO 2014 conference examines the coming changes from multiple perspectives and focuses on how generators are preparing to adapt and in many cases, lead the transformation.


Hear top experts and industry leaders identify their guideposts for the transition:

* Why the landscape is shifting 

* The shape of restructuring ahead

* How generators expect to adapt

* The changes regulators are making

* What grid owners and operators are likely to do

* Financing through transition

* Market evolution during periods of disruption

* What’s happening to the planning system

* Value-added partnerships for generators

* Governance and transition following the merger of the IESO and OPA

* How the politics of electricity will likely evolve


Contribute to the discussions on:

* Assessing the impact of DG

* How the drivers for generation are changing

* The new realities for system planning

* Working in an era of change and localized power


• Featuring the Power Networking Centre, the most comprehensive trade show in the Canadian power-gen field, highlighting exciting developments from Canada’s R&D community, brimming with vendors offering the latest energy technology to developers, and the APPrO Technical Conference, which this year is home to the Energy Storage Symposium.


The APPrO 2014 event will address the top issues of the day including:

• Ontario’s Long Term Energy Plan

• Financing issues at play in the current environment

• The new mandates, structure and governance arrangements for the central agencies

• Prospects for the next round of generation procurement

• Nuclear refurbishment and development expectations

• Fostering public engagement in the development and siting of new generation projects

• Aboriginal and community-based power project development

• Gas market changes that impact power generation

• Options for achieving more meaningful price signals

• Distributed Generation


Over-arching conference themes

Powerful forces are likely to affect the direction of development in the energy sector. Leading thinkers are invited to comment on:

How distributed generation, demand response, storage, electric vehicles, micro-grids and smart grid technology are changing the nature of the electricity sector and the drivers of the businesses that run it

Leveling demand and increasing volatility – what does it mean for the power sector?

How to reconcile the rapid pace of technology change with the slower processes of public engagement and capital replacement

The effect of technology change and market restructuring on investment: Do the new opportunities outweigh the new risks?

Is generation likely to get a fair shake in the new consumer-driven frameworks?

How to ensure that private and public infrastructure development continue to operate efficiently during a period of change?

Are value propositions for ancillary services changing to the extent that businesses will restructure themselves and make new alliances?

What are the techniques for managing infrastructure development in an increasingly complex, conflict-prone and volatile world?

How will the LTEP need to change going forward?

What is the elephant in the room?
