About DEA Saskatchewan
Mission, Vision, Values
The Distributed Energy Association of Saskatchewan (DEAS) exists to create both space and opportunity for the private sector technology providers working in the industrial and community scale energy generation, storage and sharing space. We believe in maximizing the benefit to people and communities through energy investment in a Saskatchewan First Energy approach.
The DEAS is working to ensure that Distributed Energy (DE) plays a meaningful role in Saskatchewan’s future power generation portfolio, to the mutual benefit of industry, the utilities, the businesses and communities within the province.
The DEAS believes in energy cooperation not competition, energy integration not disruption, as the best approach. The DEAS will work to promote the individual strengths of the private sector, the utilities, and the business and community partners to facilitate evolution, not revolution, in Saskatchewan’s energy service transition.
The Distributed Energy Association was created to facilitate energy collaboration and outcomes as a balancing of benefits for the utility, technology and community partners alike.
The DEAS recognizes the common stakeholder goals in the participation model for safe, reliable and affordable energy service for all.

The time is right for a new way, a distributed way, a collaborative way, to provide energy service in Saskatchewan.
Rise in investment in smart grid technologies, increase in shift toward efficient energy technologies, and advanced metering infrastructure fuel the growth of the global smart energy market. Based on product, the smart grid segment accounted for the highest market in 2019. Moreover, the market across North America dominated in 2019 and would lead the trail throughout the forecast period.
