Re: EMTF Breakfast Presentation

Online Presentation

Hello EMTF Colleagues,
I hope everyone is adjusting to the new normal of home-work life. With everyone increasingly in self-isolation or practicing social distancing, I think it is important to continue to facilitate digital alternatives to social interaction. We want to use the EMTF monthly sessions to bring some sense of community amongst fellow energy management practitioners and enthusiasts. It is more important than ever for us to support each other and continue the community that we have created.

For these reasons, we will be hosting the next EMTF session as an online presentation. Although unfortunate that we can’t meet in person, the good news is that we will have our first carbon reduced EMTF meeting. Given that COVID is likely on everyone’s mind, I think it might be fun and interesting to have a group discussion on this exact topic. I will present the following topic.

TiTle :COVID 19 and the Energy Transition
This presentation will focus on the recent COVID 19 pandemic and its implications on climate change and the energy transition. What can we learn from the global response to COVID 19? How have global energy emissions been impacted? How should we think about energy policy moving forward?

Martin Boucher is the Academic Lead for the Online Master of Public Administration and plays a key role in the Governance and Entrepreneurship in Northern and Indigenous Areas (GENI) program at the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy (JSGS) at the University of Saskatchewan (USask). He is currently completing his Ph.D. in Environment and Sustainability (SENS) at USask, where his research focuses on socio-technical pathways to clean energy in Canada, the United States, and Sweden.
