Calgary Zoo, ATCO and Opus One Solutions are collaborating to design, develop, demonstrate and deploy a novel integrated and intelligent Smart Micro Grid at the Calgary Zoo. This first-of-kind project will enable a new phase of “greening” Alberta’s electric system through multiple, local, intelligent, smart grid generation installations that significantly reduce Alberta’s GHG emissions for years to come. Calgary Zoo is visited by over 1.3 million visitors annually. With its location adjacent to downtown Calgary, over 250,000 people pass it every business day.
