Greenhouse gas reductions are being achieved today by moving users to lighting and controls that reduce power consumption.
The presentation will expand on this trend with three points:
- Rethinking power controls to align with the needs of people and industry while affecting materials consumption globally.
- Unpack the feelings and emotions people in government and business display when technology introduces change.
- How Alberta Entrepreneurs take advantage of existing supply gap.
