We’ve held many learning events and information sessions as part of the Future Supply Plan — 2030 and Beyond engagement project. If you were unable to attend or you just want to learn more, you can view previous session recordings below:
Future Power Supply Immersion Workshop: Part 1 – Nov. 8, 2023
Join us for part 1 of an online immersive education and exploration workshop on the key technical concepts for future supply planning.
Power Talks: Customer Renewable Programs - Alternatives to Self Generation – Oct. 12, 2023
Join our Customer Solutions team to learn about new renewable offerings we’re considering for residential customers. This session will focus on offerings that allow customers to participate in the renewable market without the hassle and up-front costs associated with installing rooftop solar. We want to hear about what’s important to you and share what we’ve been hearing from Saskatchewan residents so far.
Power Talks: Connecting Power Grids - Imports, Exports and Interties – Oct. 4, 2023
It’s going to take a diverse mix of power supply options to reach net-zero GHG emissions from the power grid. What role could interconnections play in our power future? And just how do we import and export power with neighbouring jurisdictions now? Watch this session to get the scoop on what goes into energy trading, which markets we trade with and how power purchase agreements work.
Power Talks: Power and the Environment - Impacts, Trade-offs and Making Sound Choices – Sept. 26, 2023
When it comes to environmental issues there’s more to consider than just GHG emissions. Watch leaders on our Environment team to learn about other environmental considerations like land footprint, site reclamation, and many more. They’ll also share our environmental approach and highlight some of the key environmental regulations that we follow.
Power Talks: The Business of Power - Cost, Competitiveness and Funding the Clean Energy Transition – Sept. 20, 2023
Reaching net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the grid is critical. But how much will it cost, and how are we going to pay for it? Watch this session to learn about power rates and markets, the historic and current cost of energy, how we fund large-scale projects, and much more!
Power Talks: A Closer Look at Supply Options – May 10, 2023
We’re bringing electricity industry experts and professionals together to share their knowledge and experience in their respective fields. Sessions will cover topics like wind and solar power, hydro power, battery energy storage, carbon capture and storage, nuclear power and compressed air storage. We’ll also talk about efficiency programs, microgrids and interconnections.
