The first week of June was an action-packed week full of Substation Automation and Smart Grid related activities in Regina, Saskatchewan Canada.
Tesco was delighted to host our international IEC 61850 delegates and an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer (Mr. John McDonald), in what proved to be a productive week full of innovative discussions.
A special thank you to the leader of the IEC 61850 Working Group (Mr. Christoph Brunner) for allowing the opportunity to host the working group meetings in Saskatchewan, and the rest of the working group for taking the time to travel to our quaint province. Although it’s not the easiest place to travel to, we hope you enjoyed your time here, including the tour of the RCMP Heritage Centre and the Aboriginal cultural experience.
Thank you to our meeting sponsors, who without their support this event would not have been feasible. We greatly appreciate your assistance, which was an integral part to the success of this event.
A special thank y0u to the IEEE Distinguished Lecturer – Mr. John McDonald – who had provided enlightening presentations at the University of Regina and University of Saskatchewan on the topic of: “The Future of Energy: Smart Grid and Beyond”. We appreciate you taking the time and sharing your international experience with the University, Faculty and other special guests.
Thank you to Carol Daniels and Lyle Daniels for Aboriginal performance, which was a highlight for many of the international guests. We all enjoyed the performance by the “Kawacatoose boys”, which was a unique experience for all.
Finally, a great big thank you goes to Nathan Elliot and the rest of the Insight Interactive team for managing the logistics and pulling it all together. Great work!
All in all it was deemed a “successfully smart” week here in Regina, and we look forward to these Smart Grid experts returning to Saskatchewan! Thank you to all those involved!
