Generating even greater innovation

The Shepard Energy Centre is already showing how innovation can lead to more, effective, efficient and environmentally friendly ways to generate electricity.

Now thanks to NRG and Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance’s (COSIA) Carbon XPRIZE, it’s going to be home to leading research into how CO2 emissions can be converted into other useful products.

Waste doesn’t need to be wasted

The natural gas-fuelled Shepard Energy Centre emits less than half the carbon dioxide per megawatt of conventional coal plants. And while that’s great, research supported by the NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE is going to use CO2 created by generating electricity to unlock innovation that will lead to new, valuable uses for carbon emissions.





Customers are free to purchase natural gas services or electricity services from a retailer of their choice. For a list of retailers, visit ucahelps.alberta.ca or call 310-4822 (toll free in Alberta).
