This study considers alternative pathways transforming the electricity grid in the four western provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The project built high resolution spatially and temporally explicit interconnected electric power systems of the four provinces. Using the model, the project assessed different pathways to achieve deeper emissions reductions, impacts on the system reliability, value of trade, and impacts on electricity rates. The project also provides insights into necessary attributes of technologies and system configurations that would facilitate the transition to cleaner electric power systems.
Join CERI on October 23rd at Bow Valley College for breakfast and an overview of the study findings.
Space is limited to 90 participants. Tickets $45 + GST.
