NSCC EnergyDATA Workshop (private event)

Halifax Central Library, Halifax, NS

Hosted by NSCC Applied Energy Research.

This is a one-day technical workshop that brings industry together to learn more about data and energy.

Our second workshop will look at how data drives energy technology, services and programs in Atlantic Canada. Join us to hear from leaders in different fields discuss a variety of data and energy related topics. We'll be defining smart data in different contexts and discussing the benefits of increasing access to data.

The workshop is a platform for local companies, government and academia to come together and look at what we're doing with data and how we can do it better. Our region has had some impressive achievements in various energy related projects in the past year and we'd like to highlight some of these accomplishments by sharing data success stories at the event.

This is a free, invite only workshop.
