The latest and greatest in the energy storage space
Huffington Post Canada
When people think of energy storage, they think of batteries. We've had them in their modern incarnation for more than 200 years and there are examples in the archeological record of things that could be batteries that are more than 2000 years old. But batteries in their current form aren't enough. Cheap, scalable energy storage would allow us to quickly integrate large amounts of renewable energy onto the grid and decarbonize our electricity system.

Need right attitude to work in cold weather
Welland Tribune

"In the winter you can always dress for it, but in the summer there's a limit to just how much you can take off on a hot day in August," said Dave Wiens, a framing contractor who was doing some work recently in Niagara Falls.

Metro News
Calgary plans to install more solar-powered crosswalk signals at the sides of streets that city staff say are cheaper and at least as effective as traditional overhead lights — provided they have reliable electricity. Eight "rectangular rapid flashing beacons" or RRFBs were already installed in locations across Calgary as part of a $200,000 pilot project.

Can we turn unwanted carbon dioxide into electricity?
Renewable Energy World
Researchers are developing a new kind of geothermal power plant that will lock away unwanted carbon dioxide underground — and use it as a tool to boost electric power generation by at least 10 times compared to existing geothermal energy approaches. The technology to implement this design already exists in different industries, so the researchers are optimistic that their new approach could expand the use of geothermal energy in the U.S.
