Save the Dates: February 6 & 7, 2019
Join us in fueling the energy technology ecosystem as the PROPEL Energy Tech Forum returns to Calgary, AB at the Fairmont Palliser for the 6th annual Forum.
PROPEL is the annual Energy Technology Venture Forum that brings together the best, boldest, most innovative emerging and established energy technology companies. Technology adoption is critical to the long-term viability and stewardship of global energy resources – now more than ever. The driving sources of energy are changing as we move from a hydrocarbon fuel focus toward renewables. Calgary is at the forefront of this revolution, standing as the key setting for fostering, commercializing, and integrating new energy technologies. PROPEL Energy Tech and its global industry partners are seizing this leadership opportunity, and have created the platform for building the energy industry of the future – and you won’t want to miss it.
Acceleware has been selected to present at PROPEL 2019 during the Technology Showcase! Since last speaking at PROPEL in 2017, we are taking the stage again as an Alumni Company to showcase our latest achievements and key updates as we navigate the road to the commercialization of our RF Technologies.
