The Westin Calgary

Calgary, Alberta
March 1 & 2, 2017


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 integration of 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.

Scope and Mandate 

PROPEL Energy Tech provides annual visibility into the constantly changing universe of emerging technology companies within the following categories:

  • Environmental technologies focused on monitoring, risk mitigation and resource conservation.
  • Energy efficiency and emissions reduction.
  • Technologies that improve the economics of conventional oil and gas extraction.
  • Pipeline operations and integrity.

PROPEL in 2017

In addition to this world-class technology showcase this year’s program will delve into the changing landscape of sustainability, energy policy, and stewardship of resources. The future and success of the energy industry will be increasingly reliant on sustainable technology; as it becomes less of a popular term and more of a corporate priority. Utilization of resources and deployment of cleaner technologies across the industry will be the focal point of discussion at PROPEL 2017.

The PROPEL 2017 program will host a diverse group of experts, entrepreneurs, and/or thought leaders that are navigating the energy innovation landscape across the three key areas of the Forum:

  • Digital Oilfield (automation, IOT, software, imaging, big data, communication technology, cyber security, etc.)
  • Environmental Stewardship and Advanced Materials (Advanced Materials, Chemistry, Nanotechnology, Carbon Capture, Waste, Water, and GHGs)
  • Resource Recovery and Management (extraction and recovery, upgrading and refinement, transportation and pipelines, etc.)
