NRStor is excited to announce that Dan Chapman has joined our team as Director, Business Development & Projects. Based in Calgary, Dan’s addition marks a milestone as NRStor broadens its footprint across Canada.
Along with his enthusiasm for executing on industry-leading projects, Dan brings 11 years of clean technology experience to NRStor. Dan is an energy expert with experience designing, developing and operating clean energy projects across Canada.
Previously at TransAlta, Dan was regarded as the corporate expert in emerging renewable energy technologies, and has served as a panelist on energy storage and new technologies at IPPSA, Alberta Power Symposium, and Carbon Management Canada conferences. He advised senior management regarding disruptive technologies and drove initiatives leading to TransAlta’s entrance into solar via a 21 MW portfolio acquisition. He originated, and managed development of the 10 MW Alberta wind-sited Tesla battery project, winning $11 million of CCEMC funding toward the initiative.
Dan is becoming increasingly involved in Calgary’s innovation community, having contributed to Innovate Calgary’s Greentech Mentor program, and will continue to work with government and community stakeholders to assess and promote new energy solutions. While employed at ENMAX, Dan gained experience with hydroelectric and wind plant operations, project management and business development.
