Battle River Carbon Hub (BRCH)
The BRCH project will utilize existing infrastructure at Heartland Generation’s Battle River Generating Station (“BRGS”) along with new hydrogen production to generate reliable, clean electricity, creating new economic opportunities within Alberta’s rural communities.
The BRCH project also includes an open-access carbon sequestration hub, proximate to the BRGS, that will capture and sequester carbon emissions from Heartland Generation, and other industrial sources in the region, safely and permanently.
“CCUS and hydrogen are both key components of Canada’s energy transition, and we are proud to play a role in advancing our industry and our country towards its net zero goals,” said Rob Dutton, Chief Executive Officer of Heartland Generation. “We look forward to working together with the Government of Alberta and our local stakeholders on the continued advancement of our BRCH project.”
