The next GreenTech Exchange Forum will be held on Wednesday, May 22nd in Vancouver and the topic is “Integrating Smart Technologies in a Distributed Environment – A Case Study on Energy Management”.
Building on the momentum of the April GTEx Forum, the May event will be an extension of the energy distribution and storage topic plus finding effective ways to integrate smart technologies for distributed microgrids.
Victor Goncalves, from Alpha Technologies Ltd, will present a case study on an innovative design for integrating distributed power modules. Alpha has teamed up with Corvus Energy to develop an Energy Management System (EMS) for a Network of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and Li-Ion batteries to demonstrate that stored energy can be used to reduce energy flow from BC Hydro during peak demand periods. This project is part of the continuing UBC Living Lab initiative for demonstrating industry-university collaboration.
The GTEx Forum takes place at Harbour Centre, Simon Fraser University. Networking begins at 5:00pm with the presentation at 6:00pm. Register online to attend.
