Alberta is transitioning away from its “energy-only” electricity market toward energy and capacity markets. This transition is intended to ensure that adequate price signals are sent for investment in new electricity generation capacity in the province as higher levels of variable renewable electricity generation are brought online. As the supply-mix changes, the province’s ancillary services markets will also need to be modernized. This pre-conference workshop at Solar Canada 2019 delivered by Leonard Olien, Manager, Markets and Analytics at Solas Energy Consulting Inc. will provide attendees with an understanding of: the direction of, and rationale for, changes in Alberta’s energy, capacity and ancillary services markets; and the various ways in which those will impact Solar Energy, Energy Storage and Distributed Energy Resources (DERs).
Workshops are available to Full Conference Registrants & to Trade Show Registrants with Workshop Upgrade Registration. Registration hours are from 9:00am to 6:00pm. All workshops will take place in the Arabian Room. Light refreshments will be served at Workshops. Lunch will not be served at Workshops.
