Using energy storage to increase renewable electricity generation capacity in Nova Scotia

Principal Investigators:

Dr. Lukas Swan and Dr. Nathaniel Pearre, Dalhousie University

Start Date: August 2018

End Date: September March 2019

Wind, solar and tidal-generated electricity each have different, but potentially complimentary, cyclic times. This project looks at how best to meet Nova Scotia’s electricity load requirements through a combination of energy storage, intermittent renewable energy output, thermal and hydro generation. ange over time when various ecosystem pressures are encountered. The research outcomes will have implications to current environmental effects monitoring programs for tidal energy development.
