Keynote Speaker: Jeremy Rifkin


Jeremy Rifkin is president of the Foundation on Economic Trends and author of the bestselling book, “The Third Industrial Revolution: How Lateral Power is Transforming Energy, the Economy, and the World.” Rifkin explores how Internet technology and renewable energy are merging to create a world where hundreds of millions of people can produce their own energy and share it with each other in an “energy internet.” Rifkin is the principle architect of the EU’s Third Industrial Revolution long-term economic sustainability plan to address the triple challenge of the global economic crisis, energy security, and climate change. The Third Industrial Revolution was formally endorsed by the European Parliament in 2007 and is now being implemented by various agencies within the European Commission as well as in the 27 member-states. Rifkin is also a senior lecturer at the Wharton School’s Executive Education Program at the University of Pennsylvania where he instructs CEOs and senior management on transitioning their business operations into sustainable Third Industrial Revolution economies.

Panel: Five Pillars of the Third Industrial Revolution

This panel will showcase Canadian technologies and business leaders driving the transition to the next industrial revolution. Focusing on renewable energy, buildings, energy storage, smart grid, and transportation, the panel will demonstrate that this transition is not only possible but economically feasible.
