KEYNOTE:   Alberta’s Net 0 Response
Essential to achieving the federal government’s targets is the provincial government’s response.    TIER design, TIER technology investments and carbon capture regulation are just some of the massive policy matters in play.

Q & A

Session 4: Electrification

IPPSA welcomes a cross-section of panelists addressing the potential for – and important considerations in – broad-based electrification.    What technologies are consumers most interested in ‘pulling’?  How can grids be updated in a manner that responds to customer choice, yet achieves economies of scale and guards against excessive impacts on delivered costs?   This panel will share perspectives from both the service providers and the regulator that oversees them.
