The Globe and Mail
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is lining up behind Alberta's call for a national energy strategy, acknowledging that the prairie province must be able to move its oil and gas through Ontario. But, on the eve of a trip to Calgary, she called for a cautious approach in deciding the best way to transport fuel in light of clashes between First Nations, environmentalists and energy companies.

Finding renewable energy is important but storing it is crucial too
Huffington Post Canada
While the mining industry is moving forward with alternative energy generation, it isn't very educated on energy storage. But the good news is the EPCs and photovoltaic (PV) developers servicing the mining industry clearly "get it." IMS Research reports that the market for solar-generated energy storage will climb from approximately $200 million last year to $19 billion by 2017.

Regional energy statistics that may surprise
The Leader-Post
As the world's sixth-largest producer of energy and its third-largest per capita user, Canadians rely on natural resources to meet lifestyle and economic needs. With its 588 turbines, Alberta ranks second in installed wind capacity in Canada. Over the next five years, the country's wind energy capability is expected to almost double to 12,000 megawatts. Using organic material such as household waste, agriculture and forestry byproducts to create energy is a growing trend.

Electrical pulses could make better wine
Physics Central
The wine industry has come a long way. As the demand for quality wine grows, so does the thirst for a better way to make it. To help satiate the palates of thirsty oenophiles, researchers at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles are developing a way to extract juice from grapes more efficiently and effectively. The technique, developed by Martin A. Gundersen, an electrical engineer at USC, and his team, is called "pulsed power."

How electrical current affects the human body
Mother Nature Network
Electricity is all around us — not to mention inside of us, where it keeps our hearts pumping and our muscles moving — but despite its prevalence in our lives, it is often poorly understood and all-too-often dangerous. It doesn't take much: The same amount of energy it takes to illuminate a tiny Christmas tree light could also be enough to kill you in the right conditions.

Meet the super-efficient Lego brick-like solar panel
Scientific American
Okay, they aren't actually Legos, but if you pulled up a microscope and took a peek at one of these solar panels, you would see a familiar studded pattern. A problem with solar panels is that most of the light energy that hits a solar panel is not absorbed. But by trapping light in a solar panel, researchers found they can increase the overall efficiency of a panel by up to 22 per cent.

Biophilia: The next step in green design
By Michael J. Berens
As the U.S. Green Building Council gets ready to roll out LEED v4 at the Greenbuild conference Nov. 20-22, now is a good time to pause and reflect on how just how far green and sustainable design have come since LEED first launched in 2000. Once considered a fringe movement within A&D circles, green building and green products have helped to keep the industry afloat during the post-recession economic stagnation. As green building expands to all parts of the globe, how else might we "green" our environments to make them healthier, more efficient and more closely linked to the natural world? The answer is biophilia.

Capital Power shifts focus closer to home
Edmonton Journal
Capital Power had its eyes set on diversifying assets across North America, but Alberta's open power marketplace and strong growth prospects have convinced the Edmonton-based company that this province is where it's at. The company recently sold three merchant power plants in New England and made 220 staff reductions at U.S. and Canadian operations, paring its acquisition-seeking department.

How LED lighting is being used to comfort patients in intensive care
Gizmodo
If you've ever stepped foot in an intensive care unit, you'll know that they can be pretty grim environments. That's all changing, though, thanks to LED lighting systems that can actually be used to improve patient care. Philips is no stranger to LED lighting, and it's already developed it for use in hospitals. Now, though, it's developed the lighting which is being used in the Charité Clinic in Berlin to create a luminous ceiling, to simulate daylight and even play media on a large, sky-like area for critically ill patients.
