In early February, a polar vortex hit the east coast resulting in record low temperatures in many communities across Atlantic Canada. The cold weather created a challenge for utilities to maintain reliability with the increase in electricity demand, known as Peak Demand. Residents rose to the challenge to help out.
The purpose of the second discussion paper in Atlantic Canada’s Electricity Future – Discussion Series is to help Atlantic Canadians better understand how federal regulatory changes and policies aimed at achieving net-zero emission by 2050, as well as evolving consumer behaviours, will likely increase electricity demand across the Atlantic provinces. Like the first paper in
Uranium: The Fuel for Clean Energy Global demand for electricity is set to grow around 50% by 2040. As the only energy source of low-carbon, scalable, reliable, and affordable electricity, nuclear is set to play a prominent role in meeting this growing demand while satisfying decarbonization objectives globally. In this infographic from Skyharbour Resources, we take a closer

Canada is on a mission to lower its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 45% below 2005 levels by the year 2030. New Brunswick has proudly lowered its emissions more than any other province. Now, New Brunswick is leading the charge towards a clean energy future with the newest generation of nuclear: advanced Small Modular Reactors (aSMRs).
Government announced the development of a Clean Tech Park that includes a Clean Tech Academy and a Clean Tech Learning and Innovation Centre. The vision for this project is to establish an industry-led cluster and destination that attracts and facilitates the growth of companies, entrepreneurs and talent focused on advances in technologies, processes and
How many people in Saint John use their oven at the same time? Peaks happen when people are plugged into the grid, all at the same time. Peaks increase energy costs and lead us to use electricity from fossil fuels. Small actions taken as a community can have a huge impact.
Energy is used to power computers, TVs, fans and most electrical appliances. Essentially, everything we plug into the wall uses energy. We also use energy for cooking and other everyday tasks. Can you imagine what life would be like without easy access to energy in our buildings, homes and schools? We need the ability
Every home collects solar energy. Sunlight falls on the house, some passing through windows and skylights where it is absorbed by roof and walls. Sunlight can help to heat a house in cold weather, but it can overheat the house in warm weather. In Building a Passive Solar Home students design a home to take advantage
Myth 1: It’s more efficient to leave a room at a constant temperature than turning the heat down overnight (or when you’re not home) Fact 1: It takes less energy to warm up a cold room in the morning than it does to maintain a constant temperature throughout the night. If you have baseboard
Batteries and microgrids could help us use renewable energy more efficiently and make power outages disappear for customers. Learn how we’re exploring that future today with customers in Elmsdale. Visit Webpage
