Title - Supporting Decentralized Energy in Saskatchewan.
The December 2018 Rime frost event with electrical (and heating, fueling etc.) service loss to over 1/3 of the province was a key moment in my understanding of the fundamental lack of resilience in our energy service. At 3 customers per km of electrical infrastructure, Saskatchewan is definitely the right place to develop a meaningful distributed energy service that will drive efficiency, emissions reductions, resiliency and most of all collaboration and participation into our Provinces’ energy service.

Erwin Heuck P Eng. - I graduated in 1990 with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Industrial Systems Engineering from the University of Regina, and subsequently spent the next 28 years working at SaskEnergy/TransGas. Uniquely, I spent the entirety of my career in the planning areas, starting in the Operations Planning and ultimately directing both the Operations and Facility Planning groups as the manager of System Planning. I retired in 2018 as the Director of the Facility Planning group. I spent the bulk of my career understanding the $3B gas transmission and distribution network system through system operation, load forecasting, outage planning and coordination, hydraulic modelling, and ultimately the strategic planning of overall system capacity service and supply risk.
