In 2016, NRStor worked alongside a consortium of energy industry players to develop a whitepaper outlining recommendations for Energy Storage in Alberta.
Energy storage will play an important role in Alberta’s future.
In November 2015, the Alberta government announced a new Climate Leadership Plan; central to the plan is transitioning the province’s energy generation away from coal and towards renewables. This decision will have numerous impacts on the current electricity system, such as grid stability. Energy storage can play an important role in navigating this transition by providing reliable solutions to many of the challenges that may arise. This paper seeks to outline the role that energy storage can play, and recommend policies and strategies for the implementation of storage projects in Alberta.
