Virtuoso Energy's mission is 'to reduce the impact of humankind by integrating sustainable solutions into everyday life.' They achieve this by providing accurate information through turn key Solar Energy, Electric Vehicle Charging & Energy Efficiency installations, to enabling society to live and work sustainably.

What is a Shop Talk Night?


Good question! Have you ever wanted to work in renewables but don't know how? Do you have a basic understanding of renewable technology but want to know more? Do you like discussing renewable energy but no one else entertains your thoughts? Well Shop Talk Nights are for you!


Arranged and run by Iron & Earth chapters, they're an opportunity for members, supporters and the community to come together to learn about the renewable energy industry, meet like minded individuals, network, share ideas and look for ways to improve their community.


Our aim is to help the community become more energy literate and understand the technology that exists to make our energy systems more sustainable. We also want to empower displaced oil and gas workers to look for opportunities in renewable energy and provide them the knowledge and platform to kick start their renewable energy career.

Will you come?

Iron & Earth was founded and operates on Indigenous land within Treaty Six Territory and Métis Region 4 in amiskwaciy-wâskahikan (in Nehiyawewin/Cree), so-called Edmonton. The home of many Indigenous Peoples including the Nehiyawak/Cree, Tsuut’ina, Niitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Haudenosaunee/Iroquois, Dene Suliné, Anishinaabe/Ojibway/Saulteaux, and the Inuk/Inuit.

We pay our respects to all Indigenous Peoples of this land. Through their spiritual and practical relationships with the land, a rich heritage for our learning and our life as a community has been created and maintained. We recognize that the transition to a low-carbon future must be led by Indigenous Peoples and that there will be no justice unless we acknowledge and repair our relationship with the land.

We are committed to responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action and upholding the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and acknowledge that we are always learning and unlearning practices that minimize harm and lead to the development of trust between us and Indigenous Peoples across Nations and urban centers.
