The US Consulate Vancouver co-sponsored a visit from Ryan Mulholland, a Senior Renewable Energy Trade Specialist at the US Department of Commerce. Mr. Mulholland visited Vancouver in order to speak at an energy conference at the Vancouver Convention Centre, organized by the Sauder School of Business. The conference was attended by more than 200 industry professionals from the private sector, academia, as well as several government representatives from Canada, the US, and Great Britain. Mr. Mulholland highlighted the recent efforts that the United States has been taking to improve its renewable energy output as well as to create jobs in that segment of the economy. He offered specific examples of successes in the United States, and how Canada can follow suit.
After his speech at the conference, Mr. Mulholland participated in a Digital Video Conference at the Consulate, where he spoke to members of Canada’s Mission in the Montreal office. PA Vancouver also conducted a short interview with Mr. Mulholland, and this video is available both on the Vancouver Consulate webpage and in podcast form for download.
