1st Annual Richard Marceau* Energy Symposium


Powering the Economy and Achieving Environmental Objectives

November 9, 2016
Western Sarnia-Lambton Research Park




*Dr. Richard Marceau – 1953-2016
A true Canadian Energy Visionary – Inspiration for Canada: Winning as a Sustainable Energy Superpower; Canada: Becoming a Sustainable Energy Powerhouse


The First Richard Marceau Energy Symposium delivered positive results for its several purposes. First and foremost, we paid tribute and honour to our friend and mentor, an inspiration and supporter of our work for many years, the late Dr. Richard Marceau. We also presented status reports on key initiatives underway by Associates of The Bowman Centre for Sustainable Energy to our supporters in the Sarnia and Lambton County area. Finally, we used the time together to engage in discussions amongst the Associates to push ahead with project work toward Canada’s future.
