NanosTech’s New Technology Is Catalyzing Change In Alberta’s Oil Sands

NanosTech is poised to revolutionize oil production by substantially reducing greenhouse gas emissions while cutting production costs. Since its founding at the University of Calgary’s Alberta Ingenuity Centre for In-Situ Energy (AICISE), NanosTech has developed a novel nano-catalyst process that improves existing oil recovery methods, providing both economic and environmental benefits for the heavy oil […]

Project

Evergreen

Although GeoExchange has been done before, what is unique about TELSEC’s proposal is that they will install 2 sets of piping in each of 100 holes. One set of piping will be used for the heating and cooling of the building, the other will be used to circulate a fluid through a total of 200 […]

eLAB Battery Project: Providing Industrial Facility Continuity & Grid Reliability

TERIC Power Ltd. supported by Keyera Corp. is proposing a first-of-kind project in Alberta at the Keyera Alberta EnviroFuels (AEF) facility with an eLAB (enhanced Load and Batteries) solution. Until now, large industrial facilities in the province of Alberta have relied on diesel or natural gas generators to provide full utility-scale reliability backup services. This […]

Project

Condition Recognition Wireless Network

CRWN.ai Identifies faulty or degraded transmission line infrastructure by monitoring electrical discharge and using ML and AI. CRWN.ai places smart sensors on poles to record electrical discharge continuously, and uses ML and AI to analyze data findings and identify infrastructure that may need repair or replacement. CRWN.ai can identify issues like arcing, tracking and Corona. […]

Demonstration of Dynamic Power Optimization Software to Reduce Energy Consumption on Oil and Gas Pipeline

CruxOCM (www.cruxocm.com) is a technology company that provides software to enable autonomous liquids pipeline operation. ​The objective of this project is to implement and field test two new software products that will enable GHG reductions, cost efficiencies, enhanced safety, and increased throughput via the automation of oil and gas assets.​

Project

RASCOL – Retrofit Application of Spectrally Selective Coatings to Overhead Lines

This project is centred around the direct application of capacity enhancing coatings to overhead transmission lines, semi-autonomously, in situ. This has the potential to increase the capacity of existing conductors by up to 30% without reconductoring or building new lines, a cost saving we estimate at 95%. AssetCool (a UK based technology company) have developed […]

Project

Transmission BESS Project Development

AltaLink’s Emissions Reduction Alberta proposal is to complete preliminary development studies for a transmission battery energy storage system (BESS) facility in support of technical and economic evaluations. This work advances BESS functional use-cases in support of grid reliability, affordable electricity, and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

Project

Hybrid Hydro Generating Asset Project

The project will combine Atlas’ supercapacitor energy storage system with one of TransAlta Corporation’s Alberta hydroelectric generation facilities to create a Hybrid Hydro Supercapacitor Energy Storage System (Hybrid Hydro SC-ESS) asset. The project will be a first-of-its kind implementation in North America. The Hybrid Hydro SC-ESS will be capable of responding quickly to grid reliability […]

Project

Heavy-Duty Hydrogen Fueling Station in Alberta Transport Corridor

To help build Alberta’s hydrogen ecosystem, HTEC will design, build, own, and operate a first-of-kind permanent hydrogen refueling station. This project plays a significant role in addressing limited hydrogen fueling options in the province and connects Alberta’s abundant hydrogen production to vehicles and end-users. Located on Highway 2 in Crossfield – a busy transportation route […]
