LIGHT THE WAY
Alberta’s electricity system is changing rapidly as we shift from dependence on coal-fired generation to other sources including wind and solar power.
Reliable electricity supply is essential for our economy. Through the energy transition we face two major challenges: aligning supply with demand consistently when some of that supply is intermittent, and ensuring the stability of the grid itself by maintaining a sufficient amount of a property known as inertia.
Energy storage provides solutions for both of these challenges, and has an important and growing role to play in the Alberta electricity system.
Evolve Power is an Alberta energy storage business with a vision to deliver firm, on-demand carbon-free electricity when Alberta needs it most.
At Evolve we are delivering solutions to this problem by creating low-cost, long-duration energy storage at our Tent Mountain Pumped Hydro Energy Storage project in southern Alberta.
As a complement to TM-PHES, Evolve is also developing short duration battery energy storage systems (BESS) aimed at improving grid stability while reducing power costs for its partners and all Albertans.
