    Competitive Alternatives to Fossil Fuels Electricity Generation

    The use of new methodologies to extract fossil fuels, including oil sands extraction and deepwater drilling, are being examined in light of a range of environmental impacts. This panel will discuss the feasibility of embracing a clear energy future. It will look at several alternatives such as hydroelectricity, solar and wind power. Our energy experts will examine whether these alternative energy sources are currently economically viable and, if not, what may be done from a legal and regulatory perspective to make them a realistic alternative to fossil fuels.
