“There is great entrepreneurship and innovation in Alberta’s energy industry, and the local spirit and skill set can help build the bridge to one unified sustainable energy sector.”
Alberta's energy sector has faced widespread support in being a critical part of the global energy mix, and it is important that local industry demonstrates that the province's resources are developed holistically and in line with domestic and global requirements.
Considering the steam dependent heavy industry operations in Alberta, local companies have an ideal opportunity for a low-carbon solar steam generation due to the high Direct Normal Irradiance (DNI) that the province has to offer. Even if there is validity to the suggestion that climate change is not caused by the release of carbon emissions, SolarSteam proposes a novel technology that offers attractive economic benefits to Canada’s energy and heavy industry.
