Getting More with Less from the Grid: Innovations in Energy Demand Management

 Registration is closed for this event
GTEx Forum in Vancouver May 27 on demand-side energy efficiency.

Recent statistics show that an average Canadian resident uses over 300 gigajoules of energy each year, equivalent to more than 50 barrels of crude oil. That’s twice the amount as in Japan and many European countries with comparable standards of living. The extra energy being consumed may not equate to societal or health benefits, and contributes to overall energy and economic insecurity. Among the suite of solutions is better managing energy demand, whereby incentives and technologies are put in place to optimize energy consumption, by matching real-time grid supply with usage data and managing peak demand. The May 2015 GTEx Forum will feature insights from energy researcher Dr. Eric Mazzi and energy solution companies EnerNOC, Enbala, and SHM Controls, on effective and practical developments in energy demand management. We invite you to join us for this lively conversation.

May 27th, 2015 5:00 PM   through   8:00 PM
