Energy project presentations at ISSRM

We have arrived for unseasonably warm and sticky weather here in Charleston, but the scenery is restorative (as well as the overenthusiastic air conditioning). Day one of ISSRM2015 saw all of the presentations directly related to our Energy Transitions in Canada project. Kristina Keilty was up first thing, talking about local baselines of acceptability around the Mactaquac headpond, then Matt Dairon talking about his southern Alberta Q-method case study. John Parkins used our National Energy Survey to examine whether trust was actually good, if we want more public participation in energy decisions, and I presented a poster on our Before the Mactaquac Dam storymap. Four different dimensions of the project, with varying scales and methods, and all received a positive buzz.

Have arrived in sweltering Charleston, SC, for ISSRM 2015, to a nearby beach house rented for the Energy team members and some colleagues. It’s a working day, appearances notwithstanding, tackling the data from last fall’s national energy survey, and talking about information disssemination plans and new grants. A long breakfast fuelled some discussion, most opting for ICED coffee given the 33 degree day, but not me. Looking forward to a productive week.
