Greening the Grid Part Two Video Info

Short Title: Made-in-Alberta – Greening the Grid Part Two

Length: (4 min)

Full Title and Description:

MIA(Ch. 16) The Grid (Ep. 2) Greening the Grid Part Two
Tim Weis from the Pembina Institute details the renewable energy suite available to power Alberta. Hundreds of Albertans visit our legislature to say “yes” to renewable energy and “no” to nuclear fission.

About Chapter 16 “The Grid”
Renewable electricity potential exists throughout Alberta. From households to farms to factories, Albertans are generating and supplying us with green power. What needs to be done to capitalize on this vast energy resource, while maintaining the high level of service we’ve come to expect from our grid?

About “Alberta Speaks”
We catch everyday Albertans out and about in our community to ask their opinions on new energy issues.

About Made-in-Alberta (MIA) Series

Energy, water and climate, these are hot topics for the 21st Century. With conventional fuel reserves running out, water tables running low, and global temperatures running high, 96 percent of Albertans now want new energy solutions. Since 2004, Barb Allard and her Made-in-Alberta team have been finding these solutions and bringing them to community television and the world-wide-web.
