BRAZEAU HYDRO PUMPED STORAGE

A potential to generate up to 900 MW of renewable energy in Alberta

INNOVATIVE ENERGY GENERATION WORKS LIKE A ‘RECHARGEABLE BATTERY’

The proposed Brazeau Hydro Pumped Storage project works like a rechargeable battery; storing water for renewable generation when demand is low and generating power when there is demand for it. Learn more about pumped storage here.

 

LEADING CANADIAN HYDRO INNOVATION 

  • Creating local jobs and investing more than $1.8 billion dollars in Alberta’s economy – made in Alberta, for Alberta
  • Power to your homes and businesses with renewable generation
  • Supports the power grid when the wind doesn’t blow and the sun doesn’t shine – backstopping intermittent renewable sources
  • Investing in the future – long-term renewable generation with a 100+ year life span
  • Ensuring competitive electricity costs to support provincial economic growth

 

A UNIQUE COLLABORATION WITH THE PROVINCE AND COMMUNITIES

Two new agreements allow for new and increased gas and renewable energy development – such as Brazeau – and a policy framework to quickly convert coal to gas. Learn more.

 

“Alberta has lots of energy. As you move into wind and solar, you don’t have it when you need it.  Brazeau really allows you to take that energy and store it for when it’s needed and consume it when it’s not.”

– Alex McNichol, Project Developer, Brazeau Hydro Pumped Storage
