Rick Whittaker – VP Investments & Chief Technology Officer, Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC)
Global demand for energy in remote communities is expected to increase from a current installed capacity of 375MW ($3B/yr) to 11,000MW ($12B/yr) in 2020. For utility companies, these communities are logistic nightmares and costly to service. Yet, as resource exploration and development drives demand for basic utility services into increasingly remote environments, the problem is only getting larger. Coincident with this development is the growing need for basic infrastructure in indigenous communities—in Canada’s backyard and around the globe–who have lagged behind far too long. Addressing these challenges is the mission that has been undertaken over the past 10 years with Sustainable Development Technology Canada. SDTC’s CTO, Rick Whittaker, will present this strategic initiative, a novel approach to infrastructure issues, and a focus on the ACS-150™–an integrated Utility-in-a-Box solution that has emerged out of a collection of Canada’s best clean technology companies.
