Objective: Solar Show 2021, hosted by Solar Alberta, was a four-day, online event dedicated to advancing the awareness and understanding of energy efficiency, renewable energy technologies, alternative forms of transportation, and Alberta’s role in the energy transition; through exhibitor booths, main stage presentations and workshops. The Solar Show worked with community partners, skilled instructors, speakers, and businesses to provide leading edge education for Albertans.

In 2021, the event included free programming for the general public (‘General Admission’), with paid programming options.
