Session Profile: Future of Renewables and COMFIT

The Future of Renewables and COMFIT
Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Lead by Luciano Lisi of CBEX and Duncan Elliot of Enercon Canada, the Future of Renewables and COMFIT session will attempt to look into the future to determine the costs for renewable energy generation versus fossil fuels in this region and the role for distributed energy.

What are the benefits of the COMFIT program for its stakeholders including universities, municipalities, Mi’kmaw councils, co-operatives or not-for-profits, and community economic development corporations?

Session Profile: New “Quantum” System


Hear Ireland’s Ronan Furlong describe first-hand Dublin’s largest retrofit to facilitate wind generation into the Irish grid, in combination with Dimplex’s Canadian launch of the “Quantum” system.

The Latest Storage Technologies session also looks at Temporal Power‘s “flywheel” technology, and Electrovaya‘s “lithium-ion SuperPolymer storage batteries”, and other leading storage technologies being designed to provide stability in supply and competitive pricing for renewable energy developers and utilities.

Is storage the missing link to making renewable energy a competitive energy option?
