Public Education Meeting — From Coal to Renewable Energy: Lessons Learned and Best Practices from Ontario

Feb 11 2013 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Speakers: Lois Corbett & Dr. Tim Weis 

  • 2-3pm: Public Education Meeting (Room 210)
  • 3-4pm: Discussion (Room 402) - limited to 20 participants, first-come, first-served 

On January 10, Ontario announced that by the end of this year, it will become the first jurisdiction in North America to shut down its coal fleet. This marks the conclusion of a successful transition in just over a decade – ahead of schedule – from relying on coal for 25 per cent of Ontario’s electricity supply to ending entirely its use of coal, while committing to cleaner electricity.

  • What were the factors that led the Ontario government to phase out coal?
  • What conditions facilitated the development of the Green Energy and Economy Act as a platform for the development of the renewable energy industry in Ontario?
  • What are the lessons learned from the Ontario experience, and how can these best practices be translated into the Alberta context?

Lois Corbett and Dr. Tim Weis will address these questions and provide an inspiring and instructive overview of the Ontario story, and how we in Alberta can benefit. Read more »
