Alberta is investing billions of dollars in transmission infrastructure upgrades and this opens opportunities to integrate new power into the energy market. Not only is there an interest to capitalize on new generation, but also a demand – the province’s need for power is forecast to nearly double within 20 years. The questions are: What will environmental policy and regulation look like in that time? In which energy storage technologies should power companies invest? What is the most efficient method to site new transmission lines? How do you engage communities and the public at large during a time of rapid development? Will Distributed Generation play a role?

The Canadian Institute’s Transmission and Integrating New Power into the Grid offers a forum for experts to debate and discuss the path of new transmission and generation, and all the need-to-know information along the way. Highlights from this must-attend event include:

•A diverse expert panel to discuss solutions for renewable power producers
•Utility-scale energy storage technologies – What’s the installed cost? And efficiency?
•An analysis of the potential outcome of a strong carbon pricing regime
•How to overcome the regulatory hurdles and interconnection costs of interties
•A variety of provincial, national and international case studies
•Techniques in differentiating your company through community investment strategy
Get critical updates and long-term forecasts of Alberta’s energy market, including new technology and upcoming policy. Discuss and debate with your peers and forge new relationships.
