A group of leading companies engaged with the Pembina Institute in 2012 to review the history of renewable energy activity in the oil and gas sector, share experiences, extract the opportunities, barriers and enablers, and draw some conclusions for how to move this area forward.
In September 2012, the Pembina Institute convened a Shale Gas Thought Leader Forum, bringing together a group of 72 stakeholders to discuss environmental concerns related to shale gas development in Canada. This is the pre-read for and the proceedings from that forum.
