Badger River Ice Monitoring Service receives Recognition from the Professional Engineers and Geoscientists Association of Newfoundland and Labrador (PEGNL)
On June 12, Amir Ali Khan, Thomas Puestow and their respective teams from the Water Resources Management Division (Government of Newfoundland and Labrador) and the Earth Observation Group (C-CORE), received the PEGNL’s annual Environmental Award for their development of the Badger River Ice Monitoring Service. This award recognizes outstanding initiatives that apply engineering or geoscience principles to the protection or enhancement of the physical environment in Newfoundland and Labrador.
On May 30, 2018, the International Energy Agency (IEA), one of the world’s leading organizations on energy policy research, released its 2018 Global Electric Vehicle (EV) Outlook. The Global EV outlook is an annual publication that provides an overview of recent developments relating to the deployment of EVs and associated infrastructure (i.e. charging stations) across the globe, including Canada. The report examines key areas of interest such as electric vehicle and charging infrastructure deployment levels, ownership costs and technology developments.
Climate change is expected to bring warmer, wetter and stormier weather conditions to Newfoundland and Labrador, which may result in increased damage to infrastructure, such as road washouts, as well as risks to public safety. To help communities across the province prepare for these risks, the Hurricane Season Flood Alert System provides advanced notice of precipitation and flooding. This can help communities prepare for storms, improve their emergency response planning, and avoid future high-cost repairs associated with flood damage.
