7:35pm - 8:30pm Stephanie will be presenting on the following topic:

Energy Infrastructure in Ontario's Remote Communities

This seminar will focus on the energy infrastructure in remote communities in Northern Ontario. These remote communities are not connected to the North American electrical grid, and are served by standalone off-grid systems. This seminar will discuss the electricity infrastructure that supplies remote First Nation communities in Ontario, including the challenges with the current infrastructure and the opportunities for the future. Living in Toronto, electricity supply is something we use every day and take for granted. Many are unaware that there are currently 25 First Nation communities in northwestern Ontario that rely on diesel generators for electricity. Continued use of diesel is financially unsustainable, environmentally detrimental, and unable to meet community needs. The Independent Electricity System Operator has been working with communities to develop solutions to reduce the use of diesel fuel in communities.

8:55pm to 9:00pm Closing remarks by Georg Kralik, P.Eng., and distribution of Technical Seminar Attendance Certificates (TSAC's) to those who requested them before the pre-registration deadline (see above); Late-Registrations, after September 24th, 6:00am, and walk-ins, will not be issued TSAC's on site, or retroactively after the seminar.

Seating is limited. To assure your space at this seminar you must pre-register, and bring a printed ticket to the sign-in table. Walk-Ins will have to stand by outside the auditorium in a "rush line" and will be admitted 10 minutes before the start of the seminar if seats are still available.
