Media Advisory - Leading energy experts come together for critical discussion of Ontario's energy choices



    Business, government and academia leaders will look at role of hydrogen,
    the 'perfect fuel,' in meeting goals for a cleaner future

    OSHAWA, ON, Sept. 17 /CNW/ - Business, government and academia leaders
will come together to discuss the increasing demand for and role of hydrogen,
the 'perfect fuel,' in meeting Ontario's future energy needs, when the
University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) hosts the Critical Energy
Choices Conference 2007 on Tuesday, September 18 in Toronto.
    Large-scale production of hydrogen is critical to the successful
transformation from a fossil fuel-based economy to a cleaner and more
sustainable energy future. Ontario, with over four decades of experience in
the nuclear industry and some of the world's most accomplished researchers, is
poised to affect that change and the time for a meaningful discussion on this
topic is now.
    Among the conference presentations are Nuclear Renaissance: Producing
Today's Energy - and Tomorrow's Hydrogen; Delivering on the Hydrogen Promise:
Ontario and the Canadian Advantage; and the Economic Imperative: From the
Hydrocarbon Economy to the Hydrogen Economy. A panel discussion will address
the topic of Infrastructure: Production, Distribution and Usage in a
Hydrogen-Fuelled World.
