Got diversity?

Diversity among our jurors in their view of an ideal energy mix for NB in 2040.

Our energy jurors completed a pre-test last night to indicate what they preferred in the future energy mix of the province of New Brunswick. With the above diversity in the group, it will be fascinating to see how the consensus process proceeds tomorrow.

We are underway at UNB’s Wu Centre, at the New Brunswick Electricity Energy Jury, with Mike Bourque from the provincial utility talking about energy mixes that keep the province ticking over. RASD (reduce and shift demand) is a big partĀ of meeting the gap that will form as some older infrastructure goes offline in coming years. A great discussion underway already.

The press release is finally out for next weekend’s New Brunswick Electrical Energy Futures Jury, when we are getting a range of interested citizens together to debate about the appropriate mix of energy sources for the province, and how to achieve it. Our team of energy researchers will be convening to help out with pre- and post-event surveys, and to listen to the discussions. We feel that such deliberative processes should help to avoid the tug-of-war characteristic of debates over particular infrastructure decisions, and look forward to seeing whether this is borne out in practice.
