This event has been cancelled.

Alternative energy sources are being considered and developed on an international basis and the oil and gas energy industry is contributing heavily to this effort. Which of these Alternative sources can contribute and compete and what is the status of some of the other potential sources. Can any of them contribute to or complement Oil and Gas Developments? This workshop is for the energy professionals that are interested in or need to know the latest high level technology and status of development for key Alternative energy sources. Topics will include Solar Energy via photovoltaic and heat generation methods, Wind Power, Bio-fuels, Nuclear Energy, Tidal/Wave/Water Current Energy, Geothermal Power, and other emerging energy sources.
