Year in Review 2009
The Centre for Energy declared "consumer power" the top energy trend of 2009.

We put on fresh face in 2009 with our new portal design and Norm hit the road with his virtual cross-country road trip 'Energy Drives Canada'. In 2009 the Centre for Energy also conducted a research poll that examined attitudes toward and awareness of energy among Canadians.
