TransAlta Corporation Receives $250,000 from Alberta Innovates - Energy &Environment Solutions to Help Launch Alberta's Commercial Energy Storage Project

TransAlta Corporation announced that it has been awarded $250,000 from Alberta Innovates - Energy &Environment Solutions (AI-EES) to help launch Alberta's first large-scale commercial energy storage project. TransAlta will use commercial-scale lithium-ion batteries to reduce energy costs for the customer. Five commercial-scale Tesla Powerpack batteries will be installed, each about the size of a household fridge, in a medium-sized building, such as a large grocery store, apartment block, post-secondary institution building or small office tower. The project should be running in late-2016. TransAlta reported that the wide-scale deployment of lithium-ion batteries will encourage more wind and solar power to be installed in Alberta, further improving the sustainability of Alberta's overall renewable energy supply.

TransAlta Signs Agreement with the Government of Alberta to Manage Water at its Ghost Facility on the Bow River to Aid in Potential Flood Mitigation Efforts, for 2015

TransAlta has signed an agreement with the Government of Alberta to manage water at its Ghost facility on the Bow River to aid in potential flood mitigation efforts, for 2015. The government is using existing TransAlta infrastructure as an effective option to protect communities along the Bow River as it continues to work towards a long-term water management plan for the Bow River. This agreement follows a successful pilot in 2014, in which water levels at Ghost reservoir were lowered during the high runoff season to provide additional flood water storage. This one-year agreement is similar to last year’s pilot but provides increased flood storage. Under this 2015 agreement, TransAlta has started a gradual lowering of the reservoir to a total of about 6 metres from its typical operating level of 1191 metres. Once this level is reached, the reservoir will be held at this elevation until July 7 unless directed otherwise by the province. Once this period is over, the reservoir will be gradually refilled to its typical operating level. TransAlta continues to examine opportunities to participate in future drought and flood mitigation efforts.
