Research Methodology

This database is populated by information of energy storage activity in Canada obtained through periodic web searches; governmental, utility and/or system operator project listings and updates; or through the form submission available on this website.  This includes listings of projects found at Sustainable Development Technologies Canada, Natural Resources Canada, and from the United States Department of Energy's Global Energy Storage Database

Information we receive via these channels is verified to the best of our ability and categorized according to the type of activities we have delineated on this site. The database is now under continual management, and will have information added to it as it is brought to our attention by any of the above (or potentially other) means. You will find further information about the classifications and definitions thereof that we use to populate the database in the pages below.

Having populated the database in the ways described above, we are not responsible for the content (including correctness, quality, timeliness and other characteristics) of the information included in the database.  Based on counsel, we believe we have adhered to all relevant copyright and information reproduction policies and regulations, and the information contained in this database is being provided publicly and not for any commercial purpose. We will endeavour to edit any entries in order to improve the content upon receipt of information (which may be provided to us through our Contact form). 

Thank you for your consideration.
