Jan 29 2010 - 2:00am

Free presentation and discussion

Smart grid technology, utility inter-active micro-generators and a multitude of possibilities for conserving energy and increasing efficiency are all now available to Alberta utilities. Mr. Holden will be discussing the innovative programs that ENMAX is embracing while looking at the realities and choices for the industry as a whole.
