The global energy sector is undergoing a profound
transformation. New technologies and new sources of energy
are coming online; new players are reshaping the global
energy market; millions of dollars are being invested in new
transportation and processing facilities; and the search for
more efficient and less carbon-intensive energy solutions are
reverberating throughout many sectors. These sessions look at the
various dimensions of the changing energy landscape and their
potential impacts on the larger global economy.
Conference themes and Sessions
The Changing Energy
Landscape
THE DILEMMA OF HYDRAULIC FRACTURING
Hydraulic fracturing has opened up vast new sources
of natural gas and oil and is shifting the energy
supply-demand balance of power around the world.
But do the environmental costs of this process
outweigh the benefits? Ground water contamination,
risks to air quality, migration of gases and hydraulic
fracturing chemicals to the surface, mishandling
of waste, and the associated health impacts of all
these may be too high a price to pay for energy
independence. What can a Fracker Do?
ENERGY PIPELINES – THE TIES THAT BIND
The efficient transportation of energy resources by
pipelines has become a political and environmental
flashpoint that threatens not only the Continental
Energy Strategy, but also the ties that bind the three
nations of North America. Is rail transportation a
viable option? What does the future hold for this
form of energy transportation?
globeseries.com  | 05
PIPE DREAMS OR PIPE REALITIES – WHAT MAKES
THE DIFFERENCE?
Finding the right route for a pipeline used to be a
simple engineering challenge. Today it is often the
focal point of controversy that can kill a project before
it begins. But some pipeline projects do become
realities. What marks the difference between pipe
dreams and pipe realities? Who is winning and who is
losing?
LNG – Exporting the Canadian Advantage
Several large LNG export projects are in development
to seize the window of opportunity for high LNG prices
in the Asia Pacific energy market. But could that
LNG be put to better use at home to fuel Canadian
industry or to facilitate the transition to a lower carbon
intensive economy? Are we exporting the long term
Canadian advantage for short term gain?
CLEAN ENERGY TRENDS: WHAT’S DRIVING THE
INDUSTRY FORWARD?
Now in its 13th
edition, Clean Edge’s Clean Energy
Trends report is one of the most established and
respected annual clean-energy publications. Based
on results from this year’s expanded research to be
launched at GLOBE 2014, a stellar panel of business
and investment innovators will come together to share
their insights on the current status, most prominent
trends, and future direction of global renewable energy
supply and storage, green buildings, energy efficiency,
and clean transportation.
COMMUNITY ENERGY: ARE THE DAYS OF BIG
UTILITIES NUMBERED?
Advances in renewable and distributed energy
systems are eroding the century old model of large
scale utilities with near monopoly powers. Who are
the new players in the emerging community energy
marketplace?
THE CHANGING NORTH AMERICAN ENERGY
LANDSCAPE
The United States is on track to eclipse Saudi Arabia
as the world’s top oil producer and this has changed
the balance of power in both the North American and
global energy markets. How will this change Canada’s
role as an energy superpower? How will it affect
Mexico’s goal to diversify its economy? What do the
leaders of North America’s energy giants predict for
the future energy landscape of North America?
A NATIONAL ENERGY STRATEGY FOR CANADA
– ISN’T IT ABOUT TIME?
Is the current preoccupation on fossil energy
preventing development of a national energy
strategy that gives equal weight to renewable
and other clean energy resources? Do we need
such a strategy? What do the thought leaders of
Canada’s corporate sector think?
ENERGY PRICING IN A WORLD OF LOW COST
NATURAL GAS
Electricity prices are rising across North America
particularly for coal-fired power generation
facilities. But natural gas supplies are increasing
and market prices are decreasing. What do
energy sector leaders predict for the future of
energy pricing and energy investment in North
America and around the world?
NATURAL GAS – TRANSITIONING TO A LOWER
CARBON FUTURE
Natural gas is a viable transition fuel as we move
to a lower carbon future. As this energy source
grows, the storage and distribution system,
whether by long-distance pipelines or via
distribution networks in cities to supply natural
gas to individual residences, will expand as well.
The potential of natural gas to play a key role in
the transition from the fossil fuel era to the low
carbon renewable energy era has not escaped
the more progressive leaders in this industry.
Hear their views on how natural gas will power
the future.
UTILITIES OF THE FUTURE: NEW BUSINESS
MODELS FOR RENEWABLES AND EFFICIENCY
INTEGRATION
What will the electric power industry look
like in the future? The utility sector is facing
a number of challenges that have upset the
conventional wisdom about where the industry
may be heading. Rising capital costs, escalating
operating costs, falling demand for electricity
and growing consumer frustration with all
powerful utilities are forcing utility companies to
reassess their business strategies and to explore
new business models. This session provides
insights from those who are at the forefront of
these changes.

THE SEARCH FOR CLEAN
AND ABUNDANT WATER
CLEAN WATER FOR ALL – THE PRIVATE SECTOR
ROLE IN OVERCOMING WATER SCARCITY
The OECD estimates that worldwide over a billion
people lack access to drinking water and more than
twice that number lack access to basic sanitation.
Learn why the active participation of the private
sector in providing safe, clean water is becoming
the way of the future.
WATER USE AND RE-USE
Increased demand for limited fresh water supplies
has spurred innovations in the technologies and
processes for reuse of water. What more must be
done to overcome the growing global water reuse
challenge?
Water is the most fundamental element of our daily
lives, yet it is the most undervalued and mismanaged of all of our
natural resources. The competition for renewable fresh water has
increased to the point that water scarcity is now a harsh reality
in many parts of the world. Increased pressures being placed on
available fresh water supplies have made better water management
a virtual necessity. These sessions explore the many dimensions of
a growing global problem.
globeseries.com | 07
THE COMPETITION FOR WATER
The competition for water to grow food, to
supply fresh water to cities, and to meet energy
production demands is intensifying. Balancing the
needs of one sector over another is more than a
challenge; it’s an imperative. Whose needs are
more important?
URBAN WATER – WHO USED YOUR WATER
YESTERDAY?
The rise of megacities gives rise to mega-
challenges in terms of providing safe, clean water
and sanitation services. Learn from those who
make water that was used yesterday safe for
reuse today.
TOWN HALL MEETING ON WATER AND FOOD
Water and food deficits, already evident in many
developing nations, may soon become a key
issue in larger economies such as China, India
and North America. Hear how the leaders of the
world’s largest food companies are coping with
the new realities of water scarcity.
CLIMATE ADAPTATION AND BETTER WATER
MANAGEMENT
New technologies and best practices are needed
to mitigate or prevent the worst impacts of climate
change. This session explores the new realities of
water management in a changing world.
THE PLASTIC OCEAN – CAN OUR SEAS BE
SAVED?
Enormous gyres of plastic wastes in the world’s
ocean have raised alarms about their impact on
the living resources of the sea. The enormity of
the problem and the lack of practical solutions
have sparked calls for tougher pollution prevention
measures. But will this be enough?

THE FUTURE OF GLOBAL
FOOD SECURITY
Food security has always been an important social issue, but in
today’s turbulent economy, ensuring enough safe and nutritious
food to meet the dietary needs and food preferences of the world’s
growing population is becoming increasingly difficult, particularly
in developing and newly industrialized economies. These sessions
explore the many dimensions of this growing global problem.
08  |  GLOBE 2014: MARCH 26-28, 2014
FOOD SECURITY IN A CHANGING WORLD
Extreme weather, droughts and floods are
having a devastating impact on agriculture and
food production resulting in famine, population
displacements and human suffering. Hear from the
world’s top experts on food security about the need
to adapt to the new climate realities.
AQUACULTURE – NEW APPROACHES TO FARMING
THE OCEANS
Aquaculture is the world’s fastest growing food
production sector providing for half of the fish
used for human consumption. Decades of over-
exploitation of limited fish stocks along with climate
change threaten the world’s main aquatic food
supply source. What can we do?

SUSTAINABLE FARMING –
MUST WE GO BACK TO GO FORWARD?
Growing consumer demands for healthier and more
ethically grown food is redefining our concepts of
sustainable agriculture. Do we need to go back
to our roots in order to make agriculture more
sustainable for tomorrow?
URBAN AGRICULTURE –
CAN CITIES FEED THEMSELVES?
Rising costs and limited access to land for food
production are changing traditional farm-based
agriculture. One solution that holds potential is
urban farming. Hear from leading visionaries as
they explore this profound transformation in food
production.
WHO PROCESSES YOUR FOOD?
SHOULD YOU BE CONCERNED?
Large-scale food processing is crucial in meeting
the dietary needs of the world’s expanding
population. But reliance on additives and other
health related concerns are becoming widespread.
How can we make food processing safer, healthier
and more sustainable?
FOOD, WATER AND ENERGY –
THE NEXT GREEN REVOLUTION
The Green Revolution of the 1950’s in large part
was dependent on hydrocarbons in the form of
fertilizers, pesticides and fossil-fuel powered
machinery. Rising energy costs are changing the
face of agriculture. Could the next Green Revolution
be the greening of agricultural production?
THE FOOD VERSUS FUEL DEBATE –
WHY THIS ISSUE WON’T GO AWAY
Many studies link biofuel’s production to rising
food prices. Fuelling the controversy are concerns
about water shortages, competition for biomass
materials, and excessive use of subsidies. Learn
from the experts who have studied both sides of
this complex issue.
IS GMO THE WAY OF THE FUTURE OR A DEAD
END ROAD?
While a broad scientific consensus exists that
genetically modified crops pose no greater risk
to human health than conventionally grown food,
resistance to GMO products has been widespread.
Will this resistance halt the further development of
GM food products?

and deployment, China is reaching out to the world both as a
purchaser of key commodities and as a supplier of technologies,
consumer products, and investment capital. China also has a
significant appetite to grow its intellectual capital and domestic
technology innovation capacity. Developing China’s economy while
responding to increased environmental and quality of life goals
present both challenges and opportunities for global suppliers.
These sessions explore the many dimensions of the new China.

ENERGY – POWERING SUSTAINABLE GROWTH
IN CHINA
China’s need for coal, oil, natural gas, and other energy
resources has led it to the far corners of the world to
lock up supplies to meet present and future needs.
However, while importing resources from around the
world, China is also developing one of the largest
international markets for renewable energy especially
in solar and wind technologies. Learn why energy
partnerships with China are good news for buyers,
sellers, and for the world in general.
BUILDING CHINA’S GREAT CITIES
China’s great cities have undergone unparalleled
growth and redevelopment over the past few decades
to accommodate increased economic activity
and a growing middle class population. However,
China is also consistently ranked high on the list of
urban centers with the worst air quality. With urban
densification in many of China’s cities growing at rapid
rates, how are domestic and foreign solution providers
lending a helping hand? Hear from those leading
the charge to make China’s great cities cleaner and
healthier.
A SUSTAINABLE CHINA IN A
SUSTAINABLE WORLD
Repairing China’s damaged waterways, agricultural
lands, and urban areas, the costs of which are
estimated at over $400 billion, are straining the
resources of national and state authorities that might
better be used to move China toward the more resilient
and ecologically sensitive economy it desires. Why is
helping to green China a way to green the entire world?
CHINA’S LONG GREEN MARCH TOWARD
SUSTAINABILITY
China’s Twelfth Five-Year Plan (2011-2015) sets out
ambitious targets for greener growth and greater
social stability in rural and inland areas. While many of
these targets have yet to be achieved, China already
has become one of the world’s largest players in the
renewable energy market. China’s aggressive drive
towards sustainability creates opportunities for both
foreign and domestic solutions providers. Interact with
those who are helping China complete its Long March
towards sustainability.

Conference themes and Sessions
THE ABORIGINAL ADVANTAGE:
REALIZING THE VALUE OF
TRUE PARTNERSHIPS
Forging resource development agreements between
Aboriginal communities and companies are becoming a business
imperative, not an option. Unlocking the potential of electricity,
mining, pipeline, forest products and transmission ventures
necessitates going far beyond regulatory and legal requirements.
Bottom line, Aboriginal interests must be reflected in commercial
land-based projects and enterprises. These sessions focus on
Aboriginal-Business Accords that are community-centered,
environmentally-sensitive and economically value-additive for
major resource development opportunities.
INTERACTIVE KEYNOTE  COMMUNITY
HALL SESSION
Securing the social license to operate in areas
where Aboriginal interests exist requires not only
a totally different engagement approach, but also
a fundamental rethink about doing business with
Aboriginal partners. Engage with those who are at
the forefront of this new reality.
COMMODITIES  CORRIDORS: INTEGRATING
ABORIGINAL INTERESTS
One of the more challenging issues resource
development proponents face is ensuring that the
economic, social and environmental interests of
First Nation and Metis communities are integral
to any new infrastructure. This session explores
go-forward agreements that meet Aboriginal and
business expectations.
globeseries.com  | 21
ABORGINAL POWER: A NATION-BUILDING
OPPORTUNITY
Aboriginal Power relates not only to energy
generation opportunities on Aboriginal lands, it also
relates to the growing power of First Nation, Metis
and Inuit leaders in corporate boardrooms. Learn
from a new generation of First Nations and industry
leaders at the forefront of the Aboriginal Power
movement which has the potential to fuel economic
prosperity.
Special arrangements will be made to
facilitate First Nations B2B meetings
with incoming investor delegations
Advancing Sustainability through Performance Verification
Environmental Technology Verification
(ETV) accelerates the market adoption of
innovative technologies and related products
by verifying their environmental performance.
It benefits companies seeking to
demonstrate the effectiveness and value of
the technologies and solutions they provide,
and also benefits technology users seeking
reliable, independently verified performance
information to support their decisions.
This special one day GLOBE Performance
Solutions (GPS) workshop is designed for
companies with an innovative technology
or those interested in having a technology’s
performance independently verified. Find
out how technology performance is being
verified in North America and globally.

  • 5. 04  |  GLOBE 2014: MARCH 26-28, 2014 The global energy sector is undergoing a profound transformation. New technologies and new sources of energy are coming online; new players are reshaping the global energy market; millions of dollars are being invested in new transportation and processing facilities; and the search for more efficient and less carbon-intensive energy solutions are reverberating throughout many sectors. These sessions look at the various dimensions of the changing energy landscape and their potential impacts on the larger global economy. Conference themes and Sessions The Changing Energy Landscape THE DILEMMA OF HYDRAULIC FRACTURING Hydraulic fracturing has opened up vast new sources of natural gas and oil and is shifting the energy supply-demand balance of power around the world. But do the environmental costs of this process outweigh the benefits? Ground water contamination, risks to air quality, migration of gases and hydraulic fracturing chemicals to the surface, mishandling of waste, and the associated health impacts of all these may be too high a price to pay for energy independence. What can a Fracker Do? ENERGY PIPELINES – THE TIES THAT BIND The efficient transportation of energy resources by pipelines has become a political and environmental flashpoint that threatens not only the Continental Energy Strategy, but also the ties that bind the three nations of North America. Is rail transportation a viable option? What does the future hold for this form of energy transportation?
  • 6. globeseries.com  | 05 PIPE DREAMS OR PIPE REALITIES – WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE? Finding the right route for a pipeline used to be a simple engineering challenge. Today it is often the focal point of controversy that can kill a project before it begins. But some pipeline projects do become realities. What marks the difference between pipe dreams and pipe realities? Who is winning and who is losing? LNG – Exporting the Canadian Advantage Several large LNG export projects are in development to seize the window of opportunity for high LNG prices in the Asia Pacific energy market. But could that LNG be put to better use at home to fuel Canadian industry or to facilitate the transition to a lower carbon intensive economy? Are we exporting the long term Canadian advantage for short term gain? CLEAN ENERGY TRENDS: WHAT’S DRIVING THE INDUSTRY FORWARD? Now in its 13th edition, Clean Edge’s Clean Energy Trends report is one of the most established and respected annual clean-energy publications. Based on results from this year’s expanded research to be launched at GLOBE 2014, a stellar panel of business and investment innovators will come together to share their insights on the current status, most prominent trends, and future direction of global renewable energy supply and storage, green buildings, energy efficiency, and clean transportation. COMMUNITY ENERGY: ARE THE DAYS OF BIG UTILITIES NUMBERED? Advances in renewable and distributed energy systems are eroding the century old model of large scale utilities with near monopoly powers. Who are the new players in the emerging community energy marketplace? THE CHANGING NORTH AMERICAN ENERGY LANDSCAPE The United States is on track to eclipse Saudi Arabia as the world’s top oil producer and this has changed the balance of power in both the North American and global energy markets. How will this change Canada’s role as an energy superpower? How will it affect Mexico’s goal to diversify its economy? What do the leaders of North America’s energy giants predict for the future energy landscape of North America? A NATIONAL ENERGY STRATEGY FOR CANADA – ISN’T IT ABOUT TIME? Is the current preoccupation on fossil energy preventing development of a national energy strategy that gives equal weight to renewable and other clean energy resources? Do we need such a strategy? What do the thought leaders of Canada’s corporate sector think? ENERGY PRICING IN A WORLD OF LOW COST NATURAL GAS Electricity prices are rising across North America particularly for coal-fired power generation facilities. But natural gas supplies are increasing and market prices are decreasing. What do energy sector leaders predict for the future of energy pricing and energy investment in North America and around the world? NATURAL GAS – TRANSITIONING TO A LOWER CARBON FUTURE Natural gas is a viable transition fuel as we move to a lower carbon future. As this energy source grows, the storage and distribution system, whether by long-distance pipelines or via distribution networks in cities to supply natural gas to individual residences, will expand as well. The potential of natural gas to play a key role in the transition from the fossil fuel era to the low carbon renewable energy era has not escaped the more progressive leaders in this industry. Hear their views on how natural gas will power the future. UTILITIES OF THE FUTURE: NEW BUSINESS MODELS FOR RENEWABLES AND EFFICIENCY INTEGRATION What will the electric power industry look like in the future? The utility sector is facing a number of challenges that have upset the conventional wisdom about where the industry may be heading.
