Episode 037: Alectra’s Brian Bentz on electricity distribution in a net zero 2050 world Flux Capacitor

    • Non-Profit

Recorded on Zoom in late June 2021, episode 37 is the fourth in a series of podcasts seeking to unpack Canada’s Net Zero 2050 greenhouse gas target. For this episode, Brian Bentz, President and CEO of Alectra Inc., the largest municipally-owned utility in Canada, discusses Net Zero by 2050 from an electricity distribution company’s perspective. In my conversation with Brian, we discuss the evolution of Alectra, their 2025 GHG reduction targets, their 2050 aspirations, and what the distribution company of tomorrow may look like. We also talk about the urgent need to redefine the regulatory compact to enable future innovation. And, as with previous discussions, the conversation wraps with a book recommendation from Brian.
