Seminar: (E-1) Limits to Renewable Energy Penetration

This seminar discusses the technical limits to how much wind and solar can be installed on the electrical grid. The presentation is one hour, followed by a question and answer period and will provide information from OSPE’s energy advocacy studies, including:

  • Benefits and challenges of wind and solar generation
  • Present electrical grid constraints and their impact on wind and solar generation
  • Cost impact of dispatching generation (load following)
  • Wind and solar production profiles compared with actual electrical demand
  • Why dispatching down (constraining output) of wind and solar generation has become necessary
  • Limits to how much wind and solar can be installed on the grid

Presenters: Paul Acchione, P.Eng.

Date: October 15, 2014
Time: 
6:30 PM to 9:00 PM
Location: 
S. Walter Stewart Public Library, 170 Memorial Park Ave., Toronto M4J 2K5

Seminar: An Engineering Perspective on Climate Change

What does the science really say about climate change? How can we account for future weather in our designs? Does this trigger any responsibilities for our profession? What are the economic opportunities and challenges? Come hear about climate science told from an engineering perspective. Hear the latest scientific findings. Have your questions answered. Skeptics and environmentalists alike can get a sharper understanding of where the line is currently drawn between science and speculation. You will also learn what we, as engineers, can do about it, at the technical, regulatory, and political levels.

This topic is so broad as to be relevant to all fields of engineering. The Ontario power grid is being modified by political mandate; civil engineers are being asked to design for more extreme floods; automotive engineers are wondering about future competition from electrical vehicles; agricultural engineers are being asked about heat tolerant crops. Whether you believe in the science or not, your customers will be asking you questions. You want to be prepared with answers. If you work on machines that produce, consume, or monitor energy, if your products are used in the water, agriculture, forestry or health care industries, or if you are concerned about engineering jobs and the future of our economy, this presentation is for you. This will be a two-hour presentation with an intermission.
