Redefining the Utility Industry: What is Possible in Alberta?

Jan 28 2010 - 7:00pm

Free presentation and discussion

With Gary Holden, President and CEO, ENMAX Corporation

The rules of the game are changing fast for utilities. We are now in a carbonconstrained world with traditional resources increasingly revealing their limitations. At the same time unprecedented opportunities are opening for embracing new renewable technologies in Alberta. There are also greater options for both supply-side and demand-side peak power management. Smart grid technology, utility inter-active micro-generators and a multitude of possibilities for conserving energy and increasing efficiency are all now available to Alberta utilities. Mr. Holden will be discussing the innovative programs that ENMAX is embracing while looking at the realities and choices for the industry as a whole. Read more »

Annual Sierra Youth Coalition (SYC) Conference

Jan 22 2010 (All day) - Jan 24 2010 (All day)

Rationale for the Conference

The Sierra Youth Coalition (SYC) is the youth arm of the Sierra Club working towards local sustainability. This is hugely beneficial because geographical areas face similar issues locally and work together as a network of individuals (environmentalists) and collectives (organizations). The goal of this conference is to educate all interested students from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia and provide them with tangible skills and opportunities to get involved in the green movement. Ultimately this conference provides the means to develop the knowledge and ability to work towards a more sustainable future. Please join us for a fun-filled weekend including very interesting workshops and seminars. This is a great opportunity to meet and network with students interested in similar issues as yourself!

Hosted by the Students' Union's ECOS

Fees: $30 before Jan 5th, 2010, $50 for non-SYC members after Jan 5th
