Community EV Charging for Garage-less Calgarians Edited

Community EV Charging for Garage-less Calgarians (in Sunalta)

 

Project Proposal

Installing 7 duplex level two chargers at street level in Sunalta will enable 200 garageless ICE vehicles owners to switch to EVs. This represents 10% of the garageless residents in Sunalta. This will reduce Sunalta's local carbon footprint by 250 tonnes of CO2 per year at a capital cost of roughly $100,000. This project can provide a... more »

Retrofitting garbage trucks to dual fuel hydrogen-diesel

Retrofitting existing fleets of garbage trucks' internal combustion engines (ICE) to use hydrogen and diesel as fuel. This will bring up to 40% reduction in CO2 emissions. Converting a fleet of 100 trucks to hydrogen dual-fuel deliver about 2600 tonnes less CO2, 40% less NOx, and save about one million liters of diesel per year.

Ciclo Technologies Inc.

Ciclo Techologies produce clean hydrogen through a self-sufficient cyclic technology at low cost and low-carbon emissions.

 

What is our proposed idea about?
Chemical Looping Reforming (CCLR) is a new proprietary process capable of producing hydrogen or syngas without external energy or combustion-related carbon emissions. This novel configuration considers a cyclic reduction of the metal oxide to carbide producing... more »

Solid Oxide Fuel Cells in Landfills: Creating Energy from Waste

The Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) utilizes electrochemistry to breakdown methane gas, a GHG, to produce energy. SOFC technology has been tested and utilized at dead well sites in Alberta. The SOFC is fed exhaust gas, and removes the methane to charge a battery. Our proposal is to apply this promising technology to new applications here in the city of Calgary to not only reduce emissions, but also create novel energy from... more »

Bow Bioenergy converting waste into low carbon fuel trending idea

Problem:  Landfills create 3.2 tonnes of CO2 equivalent for every tonne of waste landfilled.  For Calgary, that is over 600,000 tonnes of CO2 emitted annually.

Solution:  Bow Bioenergy will convert municipal waste into a low carbon fuel using the WastAway technology.  This low carbon fuel will reduce fossil fuel usage, further reducing CO2 emissions.  The WastAway technology creates high quality, virus-free  fuel which... more »
