// Operations Workshop Overview:

CEBC will again be offering a one day Operations Workshop.  We invite all Plant Operators, Supervisors, Managers, Project Developers and others who are keen to learn about other IPP operating facilities, to get and give feedback on operating problems and to expand their network of operations people.  We will cover innovative solutions and responses to recent failures at some of the existing facilities, learn about the new facilities that have been recently commissioned, and discuss key safety issues across IPP’s.   We’ll also have specific small group breakouts for hydro and for wind facilities to allow more one on one discussion with other operations experts.  This year’s session will again be moderated by John Irvine (35+ years utility experience), as well as Debbi Stanyer from Brookfield and Brock John from AltaGas.  Click here for more information.

//Short Course #2: "Managing Regulatory Compliance: Setting your EA up for success, from project inception to operation."

This one-day long workshop will focus on how to pro-actively design a project’s environmental effects assessment (EA) to facilitate and simplify compliance management during project construction and operation.  A key outcome of the day is to create a deeper understanding of the compliance and enforcement framework within which projects are regulated during construction and operation. The workshop will explore lessons learned and present proven effective approaches in meeting compliance targets, throughout the life-cycle of a project  Topics will include prescribing effective EA commitments, implementing pragmatic mitigation strategies, developing practical and performance-based environmental management and protection plans, understanding the regulatory framework for compliance management, exploring the value of agency engagement and transparency, and maintaining a strong and positive compliance record throughout the life of a project. There will be formal and informal dialogue, and networking opportunities. The workshop will be of interest to all EA and science practitioners working in the clean energy sector; consultants, regulators, developers, and academics.  Click here for more information.
