Access to affordable & reliable energy is critical to the economic development process; and as many municipalities introduce net-zero goals, it'll also be critical that all forms of energy are low or zero carbon. Given that nearly one quarter of Ontario's GHG emissions originate from buildings (namely, heating) - finding a scalable & decarbonized heating solution will be required to reach Canada's ambitious net-zero goals. We strongly believe that geo-exchange can be leveraged across the province to meet our climate goals, while simultaneously supporting economic development goals.
This session discusses what geo-exchange is, how it works & why it's relevant to the economic development community. Tune in to hear from the following experts:
- John Matthiesen, President & Chair of Future Energy Oakville;
- Sean McCaughan, Chief Strategy & Growth Officer at Oakville Enterprises Corporation (OEC);
- Dave Cano, Energy Solutions Manager at the Town of Oakville; and
- Darynne Hagen, Development Manager at Geosource Energy.
