Through this project, ENMAX will install Canada’s first Hybrid Electric Gas Turbine, at its Alberta-based Crossfield Energy Centre. This leading-edge battery storage solution involves the hybridization of an existing natural gas turbine by adding a lithium-ion battery and control system.  Using the 10MW battery storage system, the technology will be able to provide electricity to Albertans at near-zero emissions, while supporting the growth of renewables in the province.

The innovation deployed in the project will eliminate an estimated 274,000 tonnes of GHG emissions a year, the equivalent of removing 59,500 cars from the road annually.
