  • OSEA: Auditor-General’s Report Raises Important Issues for the Future of Ontario’s Energy System
    power from these reactors In 2016 Bruce Power will receive a uniform price for all units of 65 73 per MWhr Over time that price will be subject to a series of adjustments that most of us will never be able to understand or even know Juxtapose this uncertainty to Feed in Tariffs FIT The rates paid for renewable energy projects such as wind solar hydro and bio energy are fixed for 20 years Generators will be given no additional adjustments the price is the price very transparent and very predictable FIT rates have decreased with significant reductions for solar PV as technologies and project development costs decrease a trend forecast to continue The only thing we know about the price of nuclear power is that it keeps going up and that in Canada and around the world projects always costs more than estimated If a private FIT project developer goes over his budget there is no bailout from the province What the Green Energy Act and the Feed in Tariff enabled Ontario to do and the Auditor General s report fails to notice is that it jump started an entire industry creating jobs manufacturing and opportunities for communities municipalities farmers and First Nations to develop and benefit from their own energy projects Energy is a complex issue but virtually all other industries are changing with the introduction of new and smarter technologies Rosemarie Leclair chair and CEO of the Ontario Energy Board OEB aptly pointed out in her speech at the APPrO conference that we can already foresee great changes in the way in which energy will be generated and consumed in the future According to her this is similar to what has happened in other industries for example the taxi or television industries with the introduction of Uber

  • OSEA: GreenBug Energy wins 2015 3M Environmental Innovation Award
    reliable green electricity The 3M Environmental Innovation Award established by the RCGS and 3M Canada in 2009 celebrates innovative contributions to environmental change GreenBug Energy is exactly the kind of innovation and progress that 3M celebrates with our 3M Environmental Innovation Award says Liisa Sheldrick Communications and Community Relations Manager at 3M Canada We want Canadians to be proud of the individuals in business academia community organizations and government who are addressing challenges like energy availability When Archimedes invented the screw thousands of years ago he surely never imaged his invention would one day help to protect our planet s waterways GreenBug Energy of Delhi ON has re adapted the Archimedes screw design to generate electricity using gravity and the weight of water to rotate the screw and turn the generator as the water travels down the screw as on an escalator The flow generates low carbon electricity without incremental environmental impact Even fish can safely take a ride down the escalator like screw without injury The Archimedes screw generator is built almost entirely of steel and has low incremental environmental impact even when compared to renewables like wind and solar The GreenBug Energy system has the potential to bring thousands of underutilized microhydro dams under 500 kilowatts online across the Americas The journey from being worried about the environment to taking action and challenging the status quo can be daunting says Tony Bouk founder and CEO of GreenBug Energy This award from such distinguished organizations as the Royal Canadian Geographic Society and 3M Canada gives us that extra encouragement and support to continue It s a great honour Harnessing the capacity of low carbon hydropower in an environmentally benign manner has the potential to become an income generator for many of GreenBug Energy s partners such as property owners
