Utility-­Scale Energy Storage

The main objective of the utility-scale energy storage project is to bring together researchers from science and engineering to develop proof-of-concept energy storage solutions that are suitable for storing energy in the MWh range and provide MWs of power to the grid at competitive costs. Given the high level of maturity for other technologies such as pumped-hydro and compressed air compared to hydrogen storage and the fact that hydrogen can be used to offset negative emissions in transportation, residential and industrial sectors, research will mainly focus on the development of technologies for hydrogen production for storage.


The anticipated outcomes for this project will be the development new technologies for hydrogen production that exhibit lower capital cost, and higher efficiency and durability, the production of high impact research through internal and international collaborations, and the development of strong partnerships with industry where UAlberta will be playing a central role in research and development.
