Memorial Presents: Our Energy Resources: for export only, or also for development?
Andy Fisher was the main presenter, from the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, along with Sarah-Patricia Breen, a Masters student in the Department of Geography and Nick Burnaby, Energy Coordinator with the Atlantic Canada Chapter of the Sierra Club. What would the Energy Plan look like if regional development and the environment were front and centre? Is it possible to have a distributed approach – that is, have a large number of locally-directed, small-scale generation facilities spread across the province? What is the potential for this alternative strategy, and how could it work alongside the current provincial plan? Finally, what should be the links between energy supply and sustainable community development? Return to the event page
