Energy Storage Proves Key to Delivering Natural Gas Advantages

New scenarios are emerging that pair storage with conventional gas turbine generation
Article

The cost of energy storage has fallen to the point where the power generation industry is moving from demonstration projects to full deployment.

Taking an electric approach to mining has triggered some rethinking – eliminating the need for compressed air networks underground and provoking changes to the emergency response strategy.

There is no natural gas pipeline that extends anywhere near Chapleau or the Borden site, so the team had to find a solution for heating fuel to warm the air underground during colder months.
