How do we do more with what we have, with less impact on the things that matter most? This year we’re putting some of the world’s best clean-technology innovators and investors under one roof to explore how we can re imagine carbon. Building off its sold-out, debut year in 2017—attracting nearly 600 delegates—SPARK 2019 promises to be a conference full of thought-provoking speakers, experiences, and ideas. Discover how we can reduce GHG’s, attract investment, and build a more diverse, lower carbon economy in Alberta. It will culminate with the announcement of ERA’s Grand Challenge Round 3 winner.


SPARK 2019 – A Sustainable Conference

The SPARK 2019 conference strives to be an environmentally conscious event and achieve the goal of being a carbon neutral event. This will be accomplished by working with sustainable partners and actively integrating sustainable processes throughout the entirety of the event planning and execution process.
