University of Calgary, Information & Communications Technologies room 122
(856 Campus Place NW)

Albertans face a choice: Do we want to build a future with clean,
efficient, sustainable electricity sources or do we want to continue
using the old, wasteful, polluting systems that are increasingly
obsolete? Come learn how Alberta can Green its Grid and what
you can do to help.

The Pembina Institute will discuss the results of their ground-
breaking study on the renewable electricity potential for the province
of Alberta. They will discuss how renewable electricity can become
the backbone of Alberta’s electricity supply in the next 20 years and
the key decisions that will need to be made to make clean electricity
a reality.

Jeff Bell, leads the Pembina Institute’s work to promote clean,
efficient electricity in Alberta. His past research has focused on how
rate-structures, interconnection policy and choice of technology affect
incentive to invest in grid connected energy, and the global economic
potential for decentralized energy in various markets. Jeff holds a
Bachelor of Science from the University of Alberta and a Master of
Environmental Studies from Dalhousie University.

Tim Weis, is the Director of Renewable Energy and Efficiency Policy
at the Pembina Institute. In addition to numerous reports and
manuals on renewable energy and energy efficiency on issues at
national,provincial and municipal levels, he has assisted more than
20 communities at various stages of development of renewable
energy projects. Tim has a Master of Mechanical Engineering degree
from the University of Alberta.
