In February the Electricity Distributors Association released a key directional report, titled “The Power to Connect – A Roadmap to a Brighter Ontario,” outlining options for development and possible reshaping of Ontario’s power distribution sector.
- The Electricity Distributors Association is ready to delve into the new world of distributed energy resources – possibly in a big way. Their latest report lays out the key issues they expect to address as they advance down a challenging new path.
- Attracting all kinds of technical and professional attention, Transactive Energy is at the centre of the current energy transformation. With a wide range of initiatives underway, the IEEE is pulling together innovations, working out details, and test-driving a series of options.
- The panel examining how to modernize the OEB has set a timeline for consulting with stakeholders. It’s a key opportunity for input into the shape of the future power system.
- Technological improvements are doing more than bringing down the cost of wind power. Several developments in recent months paint a picture of an industry that continues to develop quickly and which may well expand into entirely new market categories in the near future.
- Electricity Human Resources Canada honors Mike Allen of OPG
- New apps assist customers in predicting peaks
- Aklavik is the site for a promising new generation demo that helps to stabilize the grid and integrate renewables.
While many people are talking about a vision of the future electrical system built on Transactive Energy principles, members of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers are working to make it a practical reality.
On March 1, Electricity Human Resources Canada presented Mike Allen of OPG its 2017 Leader of the Year Award, for his outstanding contribution within the Canadian Electricity industry.
The panel examining how to modernize the Ontario Energy Board has set a detailed timeline for consulting with stakeholders.
Among the many innovations currently spreading across the electricity system are relatively accessible software applications that can quickly and accurately generate detailed analysis of power system conditions.
Technological improvements are doing more than bringing down the cost of wind power. Steady improvements in design, materials and manufacture, in both turbine components and storage, have been making it possible for commercial wind power to gain new access in market segments at both the large and small ends of the market.
The Northwest Territories Power Corp. announced commissioning February 16 of a 590kW Variable Speed Generator Project in Aklavik.
