Have you heard of Electric Thermal Storage (ETS)? It's being tried in some jurisdictions as a way of storing renewable energy, and later using it to heat buildings. You can learn more about the technology here.
The Yukon Conservation Society is organizing a two-day workshop to explore this technology with local residents. Yukon Energy is a major sponsor.
Daytime workshops are taking place on May 13th and 14th, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Gold Rush Inn, Whitehorse. The cost is $200 for government and utility employees to attend, $100 for private business employees, and $20 for individuals. There is a free public session on May 14th at 7 p.m. Please contact the Yukon Conservation Society for details and to register.
The ETS workshop will present experience of other jurisdictions, discuss the potential costs, benefits, and challenges of ETS systems, and bring together a variety of policy makers and experts to discuss whether this technology is a possibility in terms of wide spread use in Yukon, and if so, what the next steps should be.
