With energy and environmental issues converging at senior levels of government and business today, The Future of Energy Symposium on Friday, June 5, 2015 provides an opportune time for the industry’s decision makers and innovators to gather to discuss these issues. The Oakville Chamber of Commerce and Professional Engineers of Ontario Oakville Chapter (PEO) are pleased to host this one-day symposium at the Oakville Conference Centre.
