Made-in-Alberta Newsletter Oct 26, 2009

Oct. 26, 2009

1. “Greening the Grid Part One”
As the world gets ready for the Copenhagen climate talks in December, Tim Weis of The Pembina Institute presents a groundbreaking plan for reducing coal-fired electricity, while adding a diverse mix of renewable power to our grid. We also air a short excerpt from a previous interview with Dr. David Schindler.

2. Watch “Made-in-Alberta” on Shaw TV, cable 10 – better to catch the weekend show
Made-in-Alberta runs during the Shaw TV daily show on Mondays and the weekend show. Tonight it is playing at shortly after 4:00 PM, then not again until about midnight. It also plays Tuesdays from midnight to 6:00 AM and 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. A good time to catch it on the weekend is Saturday or Sunday evenings at six, seven, eight, etc.

3. Getting to a Net Zero Energy Lifestyle in Canada – Wed. Nov. 4 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm
Montreal architect Sevag Pogharian is pushing the borders of net zero buildings by creating the Alstonvale Net Zero House, which strives to generate all the energy required for the household’s domestic and local transportation needs, while integrating home-scale agriculture. Join SolarAlberta for our new Solar Seminar season at a new location: Grant Mac Ewan University, Downtown Campus, 105 Street Building, CN Theatre 5-142. Come at 6:30 for free refreshments and to mix it up with other renewable energy enthusiasts.

4. Barb’s Field Notes: Go green! (No nukes!) Alberta Legislature, Tues. Oct. 27, noon
gal·va·nize    (gāl'və-nīz')    tr.v.  1. To stimulate or shock with an electric current.
I was looking for a word to describe the effect on my fellow Albertans of the spectre of nuclear fission in our province. I think nuclear fission has done well for some populations, but it is an expensive, polluting, non-renewable energy source. Albertans are fossil-fuel experts, sitting on vast renewable energy resources we have only begun to tap. As we plan our new energy future, to know ourselves – intimately – is the highest law.
