E.D. BLOG: Looking for feedback on our renewable energy recommendations

October 11, 2019 | Written By: Kieran Hanley

This week NEIA released its recommendations for the development of a new renewable energy strategy for Newfoundland and Labrador. You can check out our news release on this, and the document itself by clicking here.

It’s time to have an open discussion on what the future holds for renewable energy in this province, and we are hoping this helps move the needle. We would be interested in any ideas or comments that you might have after taking a read through our recommendations – drop me a line at kieran@neia.org.

One thing that we know for sure is needed is a better collective understanding in industry of what it means to be part of the interconnected electricity grid – with connections both through Nova Scotia and Quebec in the post-Muskrat Falls era. This will help us understand what the development possibilities are today, and what additional infrastructure we need in place to pursue the developments of tomorrow.

That’s why we have put together a session at our Newleef 2019 conference next week that will help shed more light on the system as-is. Over the years I have come to understand that there is a general lack of awareness of how all of this has been designed and what the constraints and opportunities actually are.

After all, it is tough to move forward without knowing exactly where you are!

Speaking of which, I hope you can join us at our conference… time is running out to grab a ticket!

Have a great weekend,

/ Kieran
