    • Green Energy Ontario Cluster SWITCH By: Sean Wong
    • Green Energy Clusters
      • Switch in Ontario, Canada
      • IRED Cluster Org. in Knigston, Germany
      • Massachusetts Technology in Massachusetts, USA
    • SWITCH
      • Develops an alternative energy sector by providing:
      • networking
      • technical advisory
      • project facilitation
      • informational services
    • IRED Cluster Org.
      • Integrate Renewable Energy Sources into the European Electricity Grid
      • Represents a total budget of about 35 million.
      • More than 100 participating institutions from research, industry and the utility sector are contributing.
    • The Massachusetts Technology Collaborative
      • Cluster to advance technology-based solutions
      • economic growth
      • cleaner environment
      • By bringing together leaders from:
      • Industry, academia, and governments
    • Ontario, North America's largest solar project
      • build 3 - 5 solar photovoltaic farms over the next 3 years.
      • 1 farm = enough to power about 2,400 homes
      • cost about $150 million to build
    • Global competition
      • Japan and Germany are world leaders in photovoltaic energy (solar energy)
      • This industry will generate 1.4 million high-quality direct jobs over 5 years
      • We compete to develop and capture these jobs and brighter future
    • Price to green energy too high?
      • Majority of people feel green energy saves the environment and saves money
      • However, Torontonians are unwilling to pay for initiatives through tax dollars
      • Compared to other cities, Toronto is behind approx. 3-5yrs in integrating green energy
      • Change perception and attitudes of Canadians towards costs of green energy
    • Younger Green Attitude
      • Toronto District School Board will install solar panels on school rooftops to generate energy
      • Energy will be integrated into electicity grid = "Green Grid"
      • Government will pay $.42 per kilowatt-hour as incentive
      • Compared to Toronto Hydro charging $.06
      • Target students to change perceptions earlier
    • Standard Offer Contracts
      • Similar deal is offered for residential areas that install solar panels with 20yr contracts.
    • Increasing competitive advantage
      • Need support from businesses and individuals to become aware
      • Government funding to make it an attractive investment for all
      • Increasing integration of educational instituations
      • Long term investment for long term gains and savings
