Edmonton Branch News & Events

November 15 | Edmonton Branch Luncheon: Energy in a Changing World

A disruptive technology can displace an established technology and shake up or create a completely new industry. The electricity sector stands to be significantly disrupted by a number of technologies. This will create opportunities and pose challenges. Join us for a discussion on several key questions: What are the technologies that may disrupt the electric utility industry? How large will the disruption likely be? When will it occur? What factors may alter the impact and timing? What will be the best way to respond? Register by Friday, November 9!
