What happens when the Covid-19 Pandemic is over and we return to ‘normal’?
Canada, like many countries, prescribed significant actions to protect the health of its citizens from the COVID-19 pandemic. These actions have had secondary, but profound, impacts on the economy. Unprecedented levels of public spending have been announced to provide an immediate and near future safety net.
Greenhouses/ Lighting the Way to Greenhouse Growing Success
Greenhouse growers must master the use of energy and water. It’s the only way they will optimize crop production and cost savings.
Utility management is becoming the new benchmark for improving margins and product quality in the competitive greenhouse growing sector.
Canada’s greenhouse growers must continuously look for efficiencies to remain viable in this vitally important industry. To this end, many greenhouse operators are looking to extend their growing season with the addition of supplemental lighting.
Not sure what you can do at your site to save energy? Neither did the team in Angola. Not having participated in energy management activities in the past, their team started from scratch. However, once they had six hours of team training under their belts, this team was off to the races!
Efforts to contain the COVID-19 virus are hitting electricity prices as demand drops in both Canada and the United States.
Governments in both countries have required non-essential businesses to limit operations; asked people to stay home; closed schools, and post-secondary institutions. With reduced business operations, electricity demand in the commercial and industrial sectors has declined significantly.
Webinar / Energy Efficiency Can Drive Industrial Competitiveness
Canadian companies that are exposed to competition from firms in other jurisdictions, will only make investments in energy efficiency when those investments are cost-effective and have a demonstrable impact on improving competitiveness.
This is one of several key conclusions from a recent report released by the Canadian Energy Research Institute (CERI) entitled, “Industrial Competitiveness and Energy Efficiency”.
On Thursday April 23 Allan Fogwill, President & CEO of CERI, presented the findings of this report in a webinar. You can view the recorded webinar as well as the many other webinars in 360 Energy’s library
Build Alberta’s Industrial Economy on Carbon Management
Alberta’s industrial economy should be built with 2050 in mind, not 1950. This is the key message from Richard Adamson, CEO of Industrial Climate Solutions Inc.
Alberta should respond to the global context and challenge of climate change, not try to recreate an era that has passed. A carbon management strategy will provide the lynchpin for Alberta to compete successfully in the low carbon future that is emerging.
