German experts tour Canada to share renewable energy successes

Think of a rural dis­trict of 102,000 people where wind turbines, sol­ar photo­vol­taic sys­tems and bio­mass heat­ing plants gen­er­ate more than enough en­ergy to sup­ply homes, schools and other build­ings. “Every­thing is impossible until it is done,” Ber­tram Fleck, the dis­trict’s chief admin­is­tra­tive officer, said October 28 in Edmonton. Fleck is vis­it­ing Edmonton, Calgary and Ottawa this week with Ber­lin-based renewable energy consult­ant Christina Worlen.
