The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with the International Smart Grid Action Network, is hosting a no-cost, webinar-based training on the PowerShift Atlantic research project. NSMG-Net researchers across all Themes are strongly encouraged to attend.

The project focuses on leveraging distributed energy resources, such as thermal storage solutions, to better integrate renewables. A virtual power plant has been developed and is currently in operation, dynamically shifting customer loads, such as water heating, electric thermal storage solutions, and building HVAC systems. Currently, PowerShift Atlantic (PSA) has a total of 16.5 MW of connected load and roughly 1,250 customers

A Clean Energy Fund project through Natural Resources Canada, PSA is led by NSMG-Net Partner NB Power, in partnership with NSMG-Net Partners Saint John Energy and the University of New Brunswick, as well as Maritime Electric, Nova Scotia Power, New Brunswick System Operator, the Government of New Brunswick and the Government of Prince Edward Island.
