Next-Generation Energy Storage Technologies for Accelerating the Deployment of Intermittent Renewable Electricity in Alberta

Alberta Innovates - Energy and Environment Solutions issued this call for proposals in 2014/15, with a total of $2m in funding, to identify storage solutions for integrating renewable generation and develop those technologies toward grid-scale deployment. Up to 75% of the project costs would be covered, to a maximum of $250,000 over two years. 

The call resulted in 54 responses and an initial approval of six storage projects, which was subsequently reduced to four projects by 2016.  However, the 2016-2019 business plan of now-consolidated Alberta Innovates lists only two projects under the "Next-Generation Technologies" header:

The report does list another two projects under 'Commercial Demonstration': 

In 2017, Alberta Innovates - Energy and Environment Solutions was merged alongside two other organizations into Alberta Innovates.  Legacy programs of the three organizations where renamed during the transition. This particular program is now operating under the 'Clean Energy - Energy Storage' funding program.

Initiatives are (typically government-led or supported) activities to promote or facilitate the further development and deployment of energy storage in Canada, such as public-private partnerships, or targeted R&D grants or procurement programs. They may or may not have Project connections.
