Major changes can be expected from the electricity sector in the eastern part of the continent. New England and the state of New York have adopted objectives that aim to cut their greenhouse gas emissions by 80%—compared to the levels in 1990—by 2050. With its hydroelectric resources and its potential for wind energy, Quebec is strategically positioned to help the region meet these objectives.
What changes will need to be made to infrastructure and technology in order to meet these objectives? What would be the advantage of increasing collaboration with Quebec? The Sustainable Development Solutions Network, a United Nations initiative, addressed these questions in its recent report entitled Deep Decarbonization in the Northeastern United States and Expanded Coordination with Hydro-Québec and prepared in collaboration with Evolved Energy Research and Hydro-Québec.
As part of its “Connections Plus” series, CanWEA invites you to attend a presentation by one of the main authors of the study, Ryan Jones from Evolved Energy Research. Mr. Jones will be accompanied by Debbie Gray and Gary Sutherland from Hydro-Québec. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to attend a high-level presentation and speak with presenters about this important business opportunity for the wind industry in Quebec and Canada. The presentation will be followed by a networking reception.
*Keynote speaker presentation will be given in English. Questions can be asked in both French and English.
Stop by to enjoy this opportunity to socialize and discuss Quebec’s wind energy future.
