Manitoba Sustainable Energy Association Presents
The Future of Sustainable Energy in Manitoba
Many have questions about rising energy costs, pending carbon taxes and climate change. This year’s ManSEA Conference aims to provide answers to some of the most pressing questions on the minds of Manitobans. Come and learn about how renewable energies may assist with our “Urgent Climate” and some of the myths about carbon pricing and renewable energy. You'll learn what agriculture is doing in sustainable energy, what is happening with biomass in Manitoba, about Community Energy Projects as well as updates on energy storage.
