CERI 2017 Electricity Conference

Opportunities and Challenges to Greening
the Canadian Electricity System

October 16-17, 2017
Calgary, alberta, Canada

As Canada debates our move toward a lower carbon future, choices must be made. How much do we rely on traditional generation and the traditional grid? How far do we advance technologies and distribution networks? Can carbon capture and storage play a role in the new energy system? Will energy storage systems live up to promised performance? How do demand management and electric vehicles impact the overall demand?

These questions pose many challenges including affordability and investment; system integration and operation. Business models may need to change to meet these opportunities and challenges. Systems may include some elements of public and private ownership to properly allocate the risk and promote innovation. Will electrification of end use services meet our GHG emissions reductions targets? What will these electricity system changes cost? What options are available to ensure investments?
