April 29, 2019

The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology has received nearly $2M from the Government of Canada’s Western Economic Diversification Canada program in support of its Centre for Grid Innovation. The centre will help companies to discover new technologies to generate, manage, and store energy, as well as reducing or eliminating greenhouse gases. The facility is a partnership between NAIT, ATCO, Siemens, and the University of Alberta’s Future Energy Systems research project. “Today’s investment in NAIT’s Centre for Grid Innovation builds on our competitive advantages and will result in small businesses testing new cleaner, greener grid technologies and bringing them to market, boosting economic growth and creating good, middle-class jobs for Canadians,” said Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development. NAIT (AB)
