The US energy technology market is large and potentially lucrative; however, a thoughtful market entry approach is essential. Although on the surface not much separates the US and Canadian markets, the historical landscape is littered with successful Canadian companies that have tried and failed to successfully cross the border. Gain valuable insight from a few of the professionals that have been successful as they probe into the differences between the markets, how customer needs can differ, mistakes that can be made and avoided, risks and rewards, resources needed, and overall what to expect as you lead your enterprise into the US.

Sponsor Spotlight

ERA was established as a key partner of the Government of Alberta to address climate leadership priorities.

Government provides grants to ERA to enable it to fulfil its mandate. This funding comes from Alberta's large emitters who choose to pay into the Climate Change and Emissions Management Fund as a compliance option if they are unable to meet emissions reduction targets.

Our aim is to accelerate development of innovative technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and secure Alberta's success in a lower carbon economy.
