Boost Quebec-Ontario hydro trade, experts urge
Toronto Star
It doesn't make sense to sell gasoline for twice as much in some provinces as others, and it doesn't make sense to do it for electricity, a Quebec business professor says. Electricity costs less than five cents in Quebec, and more than 10 cents in Ontario, Pierre-Olivier Pineau told a forum organized by York University's Sustainable Energy Initiative.

CBC News
An Ontario court has declined to intervene in the Big Thunder wind farm project, after Horizon Wind applied for a judicial review, saying court applications by Fort William First Nation against various government ministries had created confusion. Horizon wanted the province to approve the project, but company director of Community and Public Affairs Kathleen MacKenzie said a judge decided not to issue any instructions to the Ministry of the Environment.

Ontario Power Generation turns to Texas
Toronto Sun
Ontario Power Generation has contracted out health and safety checks on thousands of contractors and sub-contractors to a company in Texas. Contractors who've been working for OPG for decades have been asked to shell out hundreds — and in some cases thousands — of dollars to ISNetworks in Texas and asked to produce detailed paperwork in order to continue to work for the province’s publicly-owned electricity generating utility.

This project involves installing an 800-kW wind turbine and 1000-kWh lithium-ion battery storage system on Cowessess First Nation (CFN) land two-km southeast of Regina, SK.

China and Russia's $400 billion gas mega-deal hardly means game over for Canadian LNG
Financial Post
With its $400 billion deal to supply natural gas to China, Russia has leapfrogged Canada and other would-be LNG exporters seeking to do business with the Asian nation. But Beijing has made it clear it will not be a pawn in Moscow's great global gas game. The 30-year agreement to provide 38 billion cubic metres a year to China certainly has global ramifications and opens up a 'new Europe' for Russia, notes energy consultancy Wood Mackenzie. Russia has used its oil and gas superiority as a weapon against weaker European states that rely heavily on its energy.

Testing ground for new energy storage in New York
The Energy Collective
New York state is, after California (and possibly Hawaii), the country's biggest market for next-generation batteries and grid-scale energy storage. The action includes Long Island Power Authority's request for up to 150 MW of energy storage, a soon-to-be-unveiled storage incentive program from Consolidated Edison, and emerging opportunities in microgrids, behind-the-meter storage, renewable energy integration and other grid edge applications.

Floating wind turbine captures stronger winds for more clean power
Eco Seed
A new, floating wind turbine design could bring clean, renewable power to off-grid areas. Alumni of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Ben Glass and Adam Rein, have launched a start-up called Altaeros which will develop the world's first commercial airborne wind turbine. Their Buoyant Air Turbine, or B.A.T., uses a helium-filled shell — made of the same fabric used in blimps and sails — to hover around 1,000 to 2,000 feet above ground to capture the stronger, steadier winds available at that altitude.
