Printer Friendly versionPrinter Friendly


The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®), in cooperation with Directions Media, invites you to attend an OGC GovFuture webinar to learn how Canadian organizations are using open standards to support planning, design, implementation, measurement, and visualization of Integrated Community Energy Solutions (ICES). This free one-hour webinar will be held on 29 January 2013, at 3:00 p.m. UTC (10:00 a.m. EST).  

Ben Clark, Analyst, Climate Change Policy Unit, Ministry of Environment, Government of British Columbia, will describe the value that local and provincial stakeholders are deriving from Community Energy and Emissions Inventory (CEEI) reports for all BC communities and from the ‘next generation’ of buildings data, which provides increased ‘granularization and spatialization’ of energy usage data through Tract and Neighbourhood Data Modelling (TaNDM).

Cory Slinger, Manager of Market Development, Horizon Utilities Corporation (Ontario), will provide an overview of the value, barriers and opportunities for demand conservation programs and Smart Grid, using geospatial information (using their work as an example)

Horizon Utilities Corporation is the first company to ever be named the Sustainability Company of the Year by the Canadian Electricity Association for two consecutive years -- 2011 and 2012. http://www.horizonutilities.com/

Eddie Oldfield will introduce a proposed Energy Spatial Data Infrastructure Test Bed (Open Call) and identify marketplace requirements that can be addressed by interoperable Web services that implement OGC interface and encoding standards. Eddie is Owner/CEO of Spatial QUEST Solutions and a Member of OGC. He is Chair of QUEST New Brunswick Caucus; Member of the National Advisory Committee, QUEST http://www.questcanada.org/; and Member of Resilient Communities Working Group, National Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (Public Safety Canada).

Please join us!

Webinar details and registration are available at: https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/254787154. The webinar will be in English.

This webinar is part of the OGC's GovFuture program for local and subnational governments. The OGC's affordable GovFuture-Local Government and GovFuture-Subnational Government membership levels offer local and sub-national governments unique online resources and an insight into global geospatial policy and technology developments. This OGC membership level focuses on the value of using standards to support civil government activities. GovFuture members have an opportunity to network with their peers worldwide, with representatives from other levels of government, and with suppliers and universities through OGC events and communication channels.

About the OGC

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 480 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. OGC standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
