Calgary Marriott Downtown (110 9th Avenue SE, Calgary, Alberta)

The Canadian Renewable Energy Association (CanREA) is proud to launch a new conference series this spring. Each CanREA Summit will be unique, offering a deep, focused and specialized dive into topics relevant to a particular region of Canada, such as energy storage in Alberta, achieving carbon neutrality in Quebec and financing the development of renewable energy across Canada.

Alberta is designing a Restructured Energy Market and energy storage will play a big role. For Alberta’s energy storage players, this means new and exciting opportunities are emerging.

Learn more at Energy Storage Alberta—CanREA Summit, taking place in downtown Calgary on June 5, 2024. This full-day conference will be devoted to examining how energy storage can operate in Alberta’s changing marketplace going forward.

Attendees will hear directly from our keynote speaker, Alberta’s Minister of Affordability and Utilities Nathan Neudorf, as well as from AESO decision makers, CanREA’s policy team, and many more expert speakers who have been deeply involved in energy storage globally, as well as in the ongoing dialogue on Alberta’s policy and market reforms.

The conference program will provide clarity and direction on the expected market changes in Alberta, and what it means for energy storage. Learn how energy storage will play a critical role in Alberta’s clean, affordable and reliable energy future, become aware of the risks and opportunities associated with the proposed Restructured Energy Market (RES), and understand the transmission costs for operating in Alberta.

The Summit’s presentations will touch on:

  • What’s next for the Alberta electricity market, and why do we need energy storage?
  • State of the electricity market: energy storage opportunities and value.
  • Need-to-know case studies of Alberta energy storage projects and the innovations that go with them.
  • Opportunities now that Bill 22 has been proclaimed
  • Fast frequency response needs in Alberta
  • Customer needs that energy storage can serve, including backup power and peak shaving.
  • Demand Opportunity Service (DOS) tariff overview and implications for energy storage.
  • Long-duration energy storage

For added value, there will be plenty of opportunities to network with industry players in Alberta’s growing energy storage community throughout the day.
