Energy Council of Canada
Conseil canadien de l’energie
The Energy Council of Canada is the Canadian national member of the World Energy Council, and is made up of representatives from all facets of Canada's energy sector. The Energy Council of Canada is a vehicle for strategic thinking, networking and action by senior executives in the private and public sectors who have a broad interest in national, continental and global energy issues. The Energy Council seeks to forge a better understanding of energy issues, in order to optimally shape the energy sector for the benefit of all Canadians. 2014 Energy Council Prospectus click here

Synergies in CO2 Supply and Use in Saskatchewan
Saskatchewan has a world-leading opportunity to develop an integrated local market for CO2 which supports sustainable resource development in the province. On the supply side, SaskPower’s Boundary Dam project will use amine chemical technology to capture flue gas CO2. This capture project will soon be commissioned. Saskatchewan’s oil industry is successfully using CO2 for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in nearby heavy oil producing fields. Significant volumes of CO2 will be securely stored in the oil reservoir when the field has been depleted The synergy in supply and use of CO2 is an excellent example of how GHG emissions captured from fossil-fueled power plants can be put to use and ultimately stored, a win-win for the environment and for sustainable resource development. This breakfast roundtable will provide an update on the Boundary Dam capture project and then will delve into the implications of a local CO2 supply for enhanced oil recovery operations in southeast Saskatchewan and in the Lloydminster area of the province.

Seizing Opportunities for Canadian Energy Players in Global Energy Markets: Diversification, Barriers, Paths Forward
The global energy landscape is undergoing transformative change. Emerging economies such as China and India will continue to experience major growth in the demand for energy driven by a rising middle class, rapid urbanisation and industrialisation. Canada’s traditional energy market, the United States, will experience rising supply from the rapid domestic expansion of unconventional oil and gas production and decreasing energy demand bringing it to the brink of energy self-sufficiency within twenty years. As a result, Canada’s position as a supplier of energy, of new technologies and of supporting energy services depends heavily on the impact of these key trends in global and North American markets.

Powering British Columbia’s Natural Gas Facilities with Green Electricity: Opportunities, Implications, Remaining
British Columbia’s natural gas industry is moving forward aggressively on two fronts – expanding gas supply from previously inaccessible shale gas reservoirs, and planning LNG export projects to supply Asian markets. One consequence is that the demand for energy to meet requirements for gas processing facilities and LNG plants is growing rapidly. The BC Integrated Resource Plan estimates that the initial electricity demand from potential LNG projects can be met by BC Hydro from its existing supply. Looking ahead, increased demand from the LNG sector will depend on the actual roll-out of LNG projects and the share of their energy demand that is met by either natural gas or electricity. For example, using BC’s green electricity instead of natural gas will help companies reduce their emissions and will free up gas for export markets. This breakfast roundtable will explore the technological possibilities, opportunities, issues and practical realities of using electricity as an energy source in place of natural gas in processing and LNG facilities.
