This illustration was created at the conclusion of a workshop hosted at UNBC in June, 2012. The workshop brought together about 40 mayors, local business people, students, First Nations, researchers, industry, engineers, and others around a pair of simple questions:
1. Now that UNBC has established a bioenergy platform, what can and should it do next?
The answers are depicted on the left of the diagram as “the components.”
2. If these components were actually implemented, what would be the result?
The answers to this question are shown as outcomes on the right of the diagram, under the big heading: Deployment.
While the overall title of the illustration highlights bioenergy, it’s important to recognize that this opportunity involves multiple energy options.
Thanks to Avril Orloff who created this unique representation of our workshop.
