Alberta sees 'extraordinary season' for electricity demand
Calgary Herald
Alberta saw a larger year-over-year spike in peak electricity demand than any other jurisdiction in North America this winter, a phenomenon that is being attributed to abnormally cold temperatures coupled with rapid oilsands development. "It's been an extraordinary season, as far as growth," said John Esaiw, director of forecasting for the Alberta Electric System Operator. "We haven't seen growth like this, in a single season, in a long time."

Edmonton Journal
An Edmonton company will use sunshine and computer heat to help operate what's thought to be Western Canada's first commercial building to create as much energy as it consumes. The Mosaic Family of Companies headquarters started going up in the past few weeks. The Mosaic Centre should use about 70 per cent less energy than a conventional structure when it opens next spring, architect Shafraaz Kaba said.

Gas rates dropping for April in Medicine Hat
Medicine Hat News
Gas rates will drop from near all-time high in Medicine Hat in April. The City's utility division has set the commodity price for the current month at $5.18 per gigajoule — down from $8.35 in March when low reserves from cold North American winter sent rates soaring on the Alberta spot market. Across Alberta in March utilities charged between $7.38 and $9.38 — about double the rates posted in late 2013.

Huffington Post
Bob Sargent, a farmer who also runs an oil field services company and serves as a local councillor, explains why he made his first investment in solar energy. "It's cut my power back quite a bit. The economics are there, plus it's green." As part of an innovative new solar program, he recently put a 10-kilowatt solar photovoltaic system on his property and is already looking to put up more.

Migration to Alberta is exploding
Global News
It's looking increasingly like Alberta isn't just returning to the heady years of its last oil boom — it's trumping them. The latest piece of evidence comes in the form of inter-provincial population trends, or the number of people moving in and out of each province. In 2013, the rest of the country (save Saskatchewan) witnessed an exodus of folks from their province of origin.

Electrical submetering is smart energy management
By Jeannea Jones
Submetering allows for monitoring of the electrical consumption of individual components within a building, such as heating and cooling systems, lighting, refrigeration and more. This method utilizes individual "submeters" that allow facility managers to observe the energy use and performance of their equipment, creating opportunities for energy and capital expenditure savings. While metering programs do not provide direct energy savings, they are an enabling technology that can provide indirect benefit.

It was my pleasure to rise in the Alberta Legislature to commend the Sherwood Park and District Chamber of Commerce for its role in promoting environmentally friendly and innovative technologies. Three years ago, our chamber established an environment committee to promote and develop environmentally-friendly businesses.

Edmonton downtown boom has nothing to do with arena
Edmonton Sun
Until about 10 years ago, I worked downtown. Most days after 5 pm, you could fire a canon off in any direction and not hit anyone. It was hard to find a place to eat that was open. There were a couple of donair places, a sub shop, a doughnut place or two. Rice Howard Way had a fish-and-chip pub and a few hotels had decent restaurants. At lunch there were many choices, but not at dinner.
