TOPIC: Shifting the Balance of Power
The convergence of several factors ---- deregulation, technological change and strong continued demand for electricity ---- is bringing about potentially very dramatic changes in the electric power industry leading to a reorganization of the electricity market which may shift the balance of power from suppliers to consumers. Observers believe that over the next 5 - 10 years, power consumers will have more choice not only in terms of WHO they get their power from, but also HOW. Global is one of several companies that are developing disruptive technologies that will bring this change about.
This presentation begins with an overview of North American electricity markets and makes a link to the efforts of one company here in Calgary ---- Global Thermoelectric Inc. ---that is hoping to take advantage of the opportunities that change is offering. Global Thermoelectric Inc. is developing fuel cell technology for commercial, residential and automotive applications. Recently the company opened a fuel cell pilot plant in Calgary and expects to commercialize its technology by 2003.
