External Event

Join hundreds of others in Prince George, Canada for the 7th International Bioenergy Conference and Exhibition.

Over the three days of the conference, held at the centre of one of the largest biomass fibre baskets in the world, there will be many opportunities to learn more about the industry in British Columbia as well as the latest global trends in fibre supply, sustainability, products, technology, policies and other drivers of the future bioeconomy.

With Keynote Speaker Jeff Rubin

A chief economist at CIBC World Markets for nearly 20 years, Rubin is a thought leader on the intersection of economy, energy and climate change. Rubin doesn’t always get it right. But he gets it right more than he gets it wrong, and when he talks, people listen.

Rubin was one of the first economists to accurately predict rising oil prices in 2000. Now he has a surprising, and in some ways rosier, forecast for the future.

His bestselling book, The End of Growth…But is That All Bad? argues that the end of cheap oil means dwindling oil supplies for the future, but that it could lead to emergence of local economies and actually stimulate North American economy as well as helping the world’s climate-change problem.
