High voltage! Power experts pull out all the stops at international energy meeting
Date:6/8/2011

During a panel discussion, energy-guru and favourite read of Bill Gates, Vaclav Smil's gloomy predictions prompted an embrace from Pembina Institute Senior Advisor Marlo Raynolds.

"You need a hug," Raynolds said.

The intense discussion on cleaner ways to electrify the planet took place on TVO's The Agenda with Steve Paikan live from Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. The entire show is now archived at http://wgsi.org/events/tvos-agenda-steve-paikin-1.

THE STORY SO FAR

Participants in the closed-door sessions and collaborations at the Equinox Summit: Energy 2030 continue to involve technical discussions and potential implementation steps on a variety of electrical systems involved with energy production, distribution and storage.

Concepts for on- and off-grid options are being furiously debated. Rolling out new technologies in a carbon-based world is proving to be a tall order, but some attention-grabbing ideas are emerging.

One thing all participants agree on is the urgency of the global energy issue and need to inspire results.

RELEASING A GLOBAL ENERGY ROADMAP

June 9th, the inaugural Equinox Summit will conclude at 2pm ET with the presentation of major outcomes from the closed-door working sessions as well as a preview of the Equinox Blueprint a more comprehensive outlook of the course set at the end of the Summit (streamed LIVE at http://wgsi.org/video).

LOOK-AHEAD FOR JUNE 8TH

  • The 9 am plenary panel is "What happens when the lights go out?" It's the final in a three-part series of daily themes including energy generation, distribution, and storage (both storage of energy and storage of any harmful by-products).
  • The 4 pm talk is University of Calgary/Carnegie Mellon CO2 capture and storage expert David Keith on the relationship between energy and climate change
  • Another great source for getting the feel of being at the Summit is the live stream and archived segments from TVO's The Agenda with Steve Paikan broadcast on location http://wgsi.org/events/tvos-agenda-steve-paikin-1.
