Indigenous Leadership in Nation-Building Energy Projects

In Canada, First Nations and the Crown have a special relationship. This presentation shared the successful experiences of Walpole Island First Nation with infrastructure projects. Their experience in ‘Consultation & Accommodation Protocol’ serve to build capacity for engagement and overcome challenges.

Dean M. Jacobs is the Consultation Manager, External Projects Program, for Walpole Island First Nation

Electric Vehicle Impact on the Oil Sands; Preparing a Nation for the Future

Ed Brost, Peter Smith, and Marshall Kern, co-authored a White Paper on the impact of the growth of the electric vehicle market share on the Alberta Oil Sands. The White Paper details that there will be a fundamental and permanent change in the demand for petroleum fuels for transportation. We call for a transition plan for the Oil & Gas sector to address both the opportunities and threats of this structural change. We argue that a tipping point for fuel demand will occur early in this decade. Action is required within the current mandates of the Federal and most Provincial governments.

Electrical Grid

The Bowman Centre for Sustainable Energy has worked the national electrical grid file for a decade. We know that electricity will continue to grow in importance with respect to the standard of living Canadians enjoy. Our focus has been on sources, or generators, of electricity; and transmission lines from those sources to areas of consumption. This presentation reviewed our successes, and highlights five obstacles to be overcome.
