SHARC Provides Update on Electrification 2020 and Incubatenergy® Labs Challenge
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 10, 2020 — SHARC International Systems Inc. (CSE:SHRC) (FSE:IWIA) (OTCQB:INTWF) (the “Company” or “SHARC”) announces that, further to the press release dated March 4, 2020, the Company has received notification from the Electric Power Research Institute (“EPRI”) that the Electrification 2020 International Conference and Exposition, originally set for April 6 – 9 in Charlotte, North Carolina, is postponed until early 2021 due to the latest information on coronavirus (COVID-19) and at the recommendation of EPRI’s Board of Directors and Executive Committee.
However, the Company is pleased that the Incubatenergy© Labs Challenge is not cancelled. The Pitch Day scheduled for April 7, 2020, will be conducted virtually, via Webinar, and EPRI will work with all finalists and utilities to assign and schedule timeslots for finalists to pitch to the group. The pitches, question and answer and deliberation sessions will be completed over April 7th and 8th.
“We are ecstatic that the Incubatenergy Labs Challenge will continue as planned” says Lynn Mueller, CEO of SHARC International. “The coronavirus is creating global uncertainty around many facets of business and we are thankful that EPRI has created a solution to allow for the program to continue as scheduled. This is a significant opportunity for SHARC and the other finalists and it would have been unfortunate if the program was postponed.”
