"The 2010 Power Networking Centre brought in many relevant potential business partners for us. The diversity of the floor was great - APPrO brought in the established players, many of whom hadn't heard of us before; OSEA up-and-comers like us brought in a dynamic renewables focus. It's a valuable combination." ~ 2010

"I would like you to send a special thanks and appreciation to all of OSEA for their hard work and excellent conference management again. I am always so impressed with the team spirit and the capabilities of you all. This is the only conference outside the UK that I am keen to be at each year." ~ 2010

"Speaking from a Hydro One perspective, the level of floor activity, questions and onsite discussions with visitors regarding renewable generation far exceeded our experience at any previous trade show or conference this year."

"OSEA's valuable work to mobilise communities is a key for the broad and rapid shift towards decentralised renewable energies, especially seen from a worldwide perspective. The highly inspiring OSEA event therefore was ideal for the launch of the WWEA Community Power working group. We look forward to continuing our collaboration on Community Power in the future."
Secretary General, World Wind Energy Association
"As one of the early supporters of community power in Canada through our relationship with TREC/WindShare, Toronto Hydro appreciates the enthusiasm and energy needed to grow the community power sector in Ontario. We support OSEA's efforts in leading the way."
Director, Strategic Issues, Toronto Hydro Corporation
"OSEA conferences continue to be the most fun, friendly and useful - meeting old and new friends and colleagues, and going home with positive things to work on in the real world. It's how conferences should be."
Research Manager, World Future Council
"With the FIT program, Ontario has laid the foundation for developing community power. Renewables are decentralized energies; they are ideal for decentralized power generation in the community and the FIT program will allow for successful community power projects and economic prosperity to local municipalities. Communities need to learn and embrace the true benefits of creating sustainable energy! Although Germany has been doing this for the last 10 years, it is rather exciting to see Ontario and the great opportunities that lie ahead for you. Congratulations on an inspiring conference and I am looking forward to 2010."
