Playing on Made-in-Alberta: “Hot New Segments” (4 min)
It’s cold outside, but new
Made-in-Alberta sponsored segments will keep you warm and cozy. Bask in
the comfort of bio-mass, energy efficient heating on “In the Green:
Future Fireplaces”. Also in this episode, we provide a preview of Tim
Weis’s Solar Seminar: an astounding real-time update about “Ontario’s
Exemplary Renewable Energy Programs”. (View the entire seminar at:
Alberta’s Clean Tech Symposium - Monday, March 1, 3:00 - 8:30 PM
the Alberta Council of Technology and the Alberta Green building Council
for Canada’s first clean-tech symposium on Monday at the Mayfield Inn.
Choose your seminars and get in on some lively discussion as some of our
experts assess the status of Alberta's clean-tech industry. The evening
also includes a networking reception, buffet dinner and an exclusive
presentation about the Rampart Avenir Project, proposed $1.6 B
clean-tech development and business incubator in St. Albert.

Barb’s Field Notes: Love and money
new segments are vital to the ongoing success of the MIA project, as per
the mandate video I sent out last week. Sponsored segments provide
high-quality content for the show, but the production services that come
with them are the business of RBCC. To see what RBCC can do for you
Thanks to those who wrote in with feedback about
the Made-in-Alberta mandate video. If you would like to review and
provide your own comments (we are going to re-edit), click
Some of you on this news-list will be joining me
as panelists at Alberta’s Clean Technology Symposium on Monday. It’s no
secret that I’m all about the free sharing of information. There’s a
less obvious but more important reason. For decades, a hand-full of
people (self-selected, from all walks of life) have done sustainable
development work solely to help create a better future for humanity. No
other rewards have been forthcoming and none sought. To have that
motivation was pretty much all the calling card you needed. Now there
are many folk moving into our sphere compelled by a business imperative.
The “cultural barrier” between these two groups runs as deep as
distrusting each other’s basic motivations, yet we need each other. So,
I thank Perry Kinkaide for his skills in putting these events together,
for heartily celebrating made-in-Alberta innovation, and for all his
behind-the-scenes diplomacy. Let’s get to it.
Contest of the Week: You can do it!
one got this last time, so I’m leaving this question open for another
week. What are the four forms of solar energy at work in Riverdale
NetZero? All the answers are here
We’d better get caught up on the basics, because
the amazing new energy stories just won’t stop coming in. Next week, we
will meet some Albertans who are living and working on 100 percent solar
energy – with no grid or generator backup.
