Mohawk College hosted the latest of the Speaker Series events on November 26. This event was attended by a mix of energy professionals representing the utilities sector, the institutional and governmental sectors, energy consulting and service organisations. CIET’s Olivier Cappon was also in attendance. The presentations made by members served to highlight the resources, successes and services available for Distributed Energy Resources (DERs).
Following the DER presentations, participants were given a tour of Mohawk College’s new Net Zero Facility, the Joyce Centre for Partnership and Innovation. The Centre was fully completed in 2018 and provides a great example of various technologies and systems working together in a large multi-use building for the Hamilton/Stoney Creek area.
Although Thomas Edison could easily find one of his original light bulbs in operation today, the energy industry has made some significant changes over the last 10 years, but is poised for momentous advancement and major redesign over the next decade. With distributed energy resource technologies rapidly advancing, becoming more economically viable, customers becoming more energy savvy and increasingly concerned with resiliency, and climate change impacting and disrupting the current systems, critical change is imminent. – AESP
