8:00am Registration & Networking Breakfast
8:30am Welcoming Remarks

Supply Chain Opportunities for Nuclear Energy

  • Rahim Ladha, Manager, Supplier Relations, CANDU Energy 
  • Mark Zimny, President, Promation Nuclear Ltd. 
  • George Mandrapilias, Manager (Acting), Green Energy & Clean Tech, Min. of Economic Development & Innovation

Nuclear power meets more than 55% of Ontario electricity needs and remains one of the cheapest power sources (on a dollar per megawatt basis) in Ontario’s electricity portfolio. The refurbishment and continued operation of Ontario’s 12 nuclear reactors employs approximately 24,000 individuals and provides economic benefits to the province in the order of $5 billion in labour, fuel and equipment spending.

This session will explore opportunities available for Ontario companies in the nuclear supply chain, both in the province and abroad. If you are involved in metal fabrication, machining and tooling, electrical and instrumentation, or engineering and construction, be sure to attend this workshop.  



Smart Grid Session

  • Jerry Chwang, Senior Policy Advisor, Smart Grid and Network Policy, Ministry of Energy 
  • Kaliyur Sridharan, Growth & Strategy Leader, GE Digital Energy

A Smart Grid is an intelligent electricity infrastructure that uses technology such as sensors, monitoring, communications, automation and computers to improve the flexibility, reliability and efficiency of the electricity system. The Smart Grid forum estimates that Ontario will invest $390 million per year over the next five years into the development of the Smart Grid.

If you are involved in distribution, transmission, communications, consumer technologies and electric vehicles, or if you produce materials that add intelligence and equipment that will permit more efficient connection of solar, wind and other distributed sources of power generation to the grid, be sure to attend this workshop.
