BACKGROUND:


Most of us don’t think about energy. We pay monthly utility and fuel bills and that’s it. Would you like to develop a new relationship with the environment that lets you consume energy without dumping today’s pollution on tomorrow’s children? Perhaps you would like to learn how to save a few dollars from your energy budget.

 

If this is you, then come to SMART ENERGY FAIR 2004. Informative, enjoyable, and easy to understand - SMART ENERGY FAIR 2004 aims to provide practical information to homeowners and the public at large on energy efficiency and renewable energy.

 

SMART ENERGY FAIR 2004 is brought to you by the IEE/IEEE Ottawa Electrical Power Cluster. Since 2001, the Cluster has been arranging and organizing events aimed to promote awareness of the growing energy challenge facing Ontario, and the opportunities for business and technology entrepreneurs. The IEE/IEEE Ottawa Electrical Power Symposium, organized each fall since 2001, is now recognized as one of the premier electrical power events in Ontario, serving consumers, industry, government, academia and other professionals.
