The inaugural Equinox Summit: Energy 2030 took place on June 5-9, 2011 in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physic. It brought together leading scientists, future leaders and experienced advisors to envision a low carbon, electrified future coupled with a growing need to expand the capacity, increase the resilience and security, and improve the efficiency of our global energy systems.
