In 2014 the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association (OSEA) and Decentralised Energy Canada (DEC) are partnering to bring the success of the Ontario Green Energy Doors Open to Alberta.

Alberta’s Green Energy Doors Open 2014 (GEDO14AB) is an annual, single-day, province-wide showcase providing you with access to Decentralised Energy (DE) projects, businesses, manufacturing sites, education programs and other related initiatives. GEDO 2014 takes place Saturday, October 4th.

We encourage all users, producers and advocates of decentralised energy to open their doors in order to raise awareness, understanding and support for DE.

It is our goal to raise awareness, understanding and support for decentralised energy by providing people with the opportunity to visit, see, touch and talk about the projects in their backyard.
