New journal article published

Profs. Ian Rowlands and Paul Parker – along with Faculty of Environment alum Tobi Reid (ERS ’13) – have just had an article published in the journal, Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Energy and Environment.

Prof. Paul Parker will travel to China next week to share his expertise about growing the green economy with green energy.  Prof. Parker will focus on Ontario's experience of closing the coal plants and investing in renewable electricity, on retrofitting houses for efficiency and comfort gains, and on building low carbon subdivisions to test pathways to a low carbon future.

Presentation at EDF

Prof. Ian Rowlands is travelling to France to share research findings related to residential (electricity) demand response.  Presenting with his collaborator, Dr. Guy Newsham (National Research Council, Ottawa), the international workshop is entitled, Evaluation of Demand Response Mechanisms, and is being held in Paris on 30 June and 1 July 2014. 

Today, Ian Rowlands, in collaboration with research partners at Carleton University, had an article published in Renewable Energy.  Entitled, 'Managing Solar-PV Variability With Geographical Dispersion:  An Ontario (Canada) Case-study', it examines the extent to which the broad distribution of solar-PV panels in Ontario might lead to better performance, on a variety of metrics.  The article can be found in Vol. 68, August 2014, pp. 171-180 or here.

Prof. Paul Parker recently returned from Oklahoma, where he gave a series of three lectures at the University of Oklahoma.  Two were for students taking a course on 'Sustainability and Global Environmental Change', and were entitled, 'Sustainability Macro Solutions:  Policies and Technology', and 'Sustainability Micro Solutions:  Information, Incentives and Action'. The other was a public lecture, entitled, 'How to Turn Sustainability Research into Practice:  Reducing Carbon in Electricity and Saving Water'.
