The proposed project will involve the development, design, construction, commissioning and operation of a novel, utility-scale, solar plus storage electricity generation facility near Aldersyde, Alberta. The project combines innovative bifacial panel solar technology that takes advantage of Alberta’s climactic conditions, with the deployment of flow battery energy storage technology to demonstrate the practicability of firming renewable generation and viability of long duration battery storage in Alberta. This innovative project will provide direct GHG benefits through the generation of emissions-free renewable power. The project will also help prove out the technical and commercial viability of the chosen technologies, thus increasing the potential for wide scale adoption within the Alberta and wider Canadian electricity markets.
