Electricity Supply

The ability to tie into the regional transmission grid and the ability of that grid to physically support the power demand of the Project are both critical to the Project’s success.

Neither are expected to be issues for the Project as the regional electrical transmission system is well developed within southern Alberta and is located within a few km of the current proposed site.

In order to reduce the risk of delays in start-up, IEPS has already initiated the Alberta Electrical System Operator (“AESO”) interconnection application process (see: https://www.aeso.ca/grid/connecting-to-the-grid).

Electricity Costs

In addition to supply, the ability to purchase electricity at acceptable prices is also critical to the success of the Project.

IEPS has developed an electricity acquisition strategy that will accomplish that goal, taking advantage of Alberta’s competitive electricity market and the operational flexibility of PEM electrolyzers.
