Pathways to Low-Carbon Space Heating in Edmonton, AB:
Electrification vs. Hydrogen
Tuesday, November 28, 2023
Brodie Chalmers, Manager, Hydrogen System Planning, ATCO
About the Webinar
Much has been made of the need to “electrify everything.” Recently, there has been strong focus on the need to electrify space heating in Canada. But is this really the optimal pathway across the country? This presentation explores the costs of low-carbon space heating pathways in Edmonton, Alberta at the system and individual levels, in consideration of the required utility infrastructure to support such a transition.
Join us for this important conversation on finding the most efficient, effective and affordable pathway to reducing emissions, and be sure to take part in the Q&A after the webinar.
