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 45,000 tonnes of GHG emissions annually, the equivalent of taking 10,000 cars off the road.
