A Green-Powered Canada

Completed

Description

Students learned about a new option for an alternative energy source in Canada. While Saskatchewan is well suited for energy sources including solar and wind, there are concerns that these do not provide a steady, reliable base power supply. Through a live video presentation, students learned about a project in Estevan Saskatchewan to develop geothermal heat for electrical production. Students were also able to ask questions of the CEO of Deep Earth Energy, Kristin Marcia. They learned that although there is no geothermal energy production yet in Canada, it seems to have a lot of potential. In Saskatchewan, it can make use of technology and skills from the oil industry, and help with transitioning to lower reliance on fossil fuels.
