Development of Life Cycle Net Energy Ratio of ES Technologies

Project Leader: Amit Kumar, University of Alberta

This project aims to assess ES pathways in terms of the ratio of energy input to output to calculate much energy is required over a life cycle to store a unit of energy from a particular energy source. The ratio of energy input to energy output through a particular pathway is referred to as Net Energy Ratio (NER). First, a LCA framework of ES technologies specific to Canada will be developed and used to create LCA models for the various storage solutions. Then a comparative assessment of NER and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for ES technologies will be undertaken.

R&D Project

R&D activities are directed at the further study, analysis or development of storage and/or storage-related technologies and their operation and deployment in Canada. They are typically supported by an Initiative, and are often hosted at an academic institution.
