Climate Imperative Part 3: Energy Futures
Calgary has long been seen as an energy centre, but what would it look like for our city and province to take the lead on a sustainable energy future? How do we not only build a better future for our great city, but also become a force to amplify these practices to those who look to us as a global example?
Designing and building systems and structures that are reactive to the current climate realities, that will also remain relevant for decades to come as these factors evolve, requires us to challenge current thinking. Join some of the most innovative Calgarians influencing our energy future as they discuss what is happening now, what innovations are being developed to move us forward, the gaps that still exist and what this means for the building industry.
The panel brings together three thought leaders in the industry who are seeking to create places that are future-proof and made for people:
- Mayor of Calgary Jyoti Gondek
- John Kousinioris, President and CEO, TransAlta
- Teri Balser, Professor and Former Provost, University of Calgary
Moderated by Jasmine Palardy, Co-founder of Future Fit Cities, the third conversation in DIALOG’s Climate Imperative Series will highlight current sustainable energy innovations, how we can move with a climate conscious path forward, and what this means for the building industry.
