Powering the GLOBE Grid: Collaborative Energy

The GLOBE Microgrid is both a technical and philosophical  breakthrough: learn about how one man with a dream brought 10 companies and 30 people together to achieve real-time renewable energy on the Innovation Expo floor.  

Charge your phone from solar power, check out EV charging stations in action, jump on a pedal-powered generator, and track the action and activity on the real-time power monitoring system. This extremely rare, fully-functional, collaborative energy grid could only be seen at GLOBE – technology not to be missed!

Feastro – voted one of Vancouver’s Top 10 Food Trucks, Feastro featured daily creations like seafood tacos, fish & chips, fried oysters, prawn bisque, salads and more.

REEL Mac & Cheese – just like the name says, this food truck offered authentic, scratch made gourmet macaroni and cheese with playful movie-themed menus. Check out their Slumdog Millionaire, Run Fatboy Run, or The Breakfast Club – or all three!

The Reef Runner – Vancouver’s most popular Caribbean food truck originating from Commercial Drive’s iconic Reef Restaurant. Enjoy their home-made Jamaican Patties, meat/veggie/vegan Caribbean roties, or, our personal favorite, jerk chicken poutine. Yum!
