Register now for Solar in Alberta: What does it look like and how do we manage it?


Solar PV generation could significantly grow in Alberta - or be a victim of a dash for gas. How big can it be - or should it be? What are the tradeoffs between residential and utility scale projects? What barriers to further development exist, and what role should government play in removing them? What does solar's growth in Alberta mean for the electricity grid, jobs, and Canada's climate targets?  

The Energy vs Climate Podcast is partnering with Solar Alberta to produce a live in-conference podcast at the 2021 Solar Show. Bring your comments and questions for hosts David Keith, Sara Hastings-Simon and Ed Whittingham, then relive it on Apple podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify or wherever you listen. 

To attend the free live webinar, Friday, March 5 at 10 a.m. MST / 12 p.m. EST, register for general admission to the Solar Show. Instructions for how to join the live show will be shared leading up to the event.
