Heartland Generation is excited to have been selected by the Alberta Government to move to the next stage in our proposal to evaluate and develop an open-access carbon sequestration hub in East Central Alberta.
The Battle River Carbon Hub (BRCH) proposes to sequester up to five million tonnes per annum of carbon dioxide emissions from the region, providing safe and permanent carbon storage for local industries, including Heartland’s Battle River Generating Station. This is equal to taking approximately one million cars off the road annually.
We look forward to continuing collaboration with local stakeholders, Indigenous communities, industry peers and government to provide reliable and affordable power, as we create a pathway to net zero electricity and economic growth in Alberta.
We would also like to thank the teams that contributed to our application and will be supporting the next steps as we move towards building an innovative solution to decarbonize our industry.
“Carbon capture and sequestration are key components of Canada’s clean energy transition, and we are proud to play a role in advancing our industry toward its net zero goals, while also meeting Alberta’s growing need for reliable and affordable power.”
Heartland Generation’s Battle River Carbon Hub will be located on the traditional territory of Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux, Métis and Nakota Sioux nations. These lands are now known as Treaty 6, and Métis Nation of Alberta Region 2. Heartland Generation respects the lands, histories, culture, and languages of all Indigenous Peoples who have lived on and cared for these lands since time immemorial. We make this acknowledgment as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those in whose territory we live and work.
