Heartland Generation's funding will be used to evaluate the feasibility of converting our natural gas-fired Battle River Generating Station to hydrogen, producing electricity with zero emissions, and strengthening Alberta’s power grid.
Building a Better Bridge to a Clean Energy Future
We believe in an energy transition that is fair and just and we are committed to finding innovative solutions that extend the life of our existing assets, achieve deep decarbonization and create opportunities in rural economies.
The Battle River Carbon Hub (BRCH) would be Alberta’s first large-scale 100 percent hydrogen-fired power generation facility that integrates hydrogen production, carbon sequestration and clean power to advance Canada towards net zero.
About the Carbon Capture Kickstart Program
The Carbon Capture Kickstart Program builds on Alberta’s global leadership in this space and will fill key knowledge gaps, drive partnerships and innovation, and accelerate project financing and deployment in Alberta.
Carbon Capture Kickstart supports pre-construction design and engineering and is focused on carbon capture, direct air capture, direct carbon conversion and strategic carbon dioxide transportation infrastructure.
Proposals for funding addressed emissions across a variety of sectors including power generation, cement production, manufacturing, oil and gas and more.
