Kick off tomorrow for Let’s Talk Energy Week 2016
February 19, 2016 – It’s time to talk energy, as the third annual Talk Energy Week kicks off tomorrow (February 20 to 27) to engage Canadians in a national conversation about energy.
Talk Energy Week’s 2016 Speakers Series will host talks in every Canadian province and territory; 21 schools will host talks, with over 45 speakers representing hydro, oil & gas, solar, wind and biofuel energy.
Meantime, museums and science centres across Canada will offer visitors opportunities to take part in hands-on activities and learn about Canada’s energy future. Visitors to 11 of these sites will be able to learn about the energy impact of heating & cooling through interactive demonstrations featuring thermal cameras from FLIR.
In addition, you can take part in Talk Energy Week through a webinar hosted on February 24, 2016, at 1 pm (EST) featuring Masters students from the University of Ottawa’s Collaboratory on Energy Research & Policy, who will lead a discussion on Canada’s energy future.
The Let’s Talk Energy initiative has received support from several partners, including the Imperial Oil Foundation, Encana, the Suncor Energy Foundation, Cenovus Energy, Canadian Natural Resources Ltd., Sustainable Development Technology Canada, Canadian Nuclear Revitalization Partners, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, and the University of Ottawa School of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science.
