  • Ontario's Largest RNG Project Energy Board Approved (Ind. Report)
    Renewable Natural Gas,Enbridge
    Date: 2020-10-14
    In Toronto, the Ontario Energy Board has given the nod to a $42 million Niagara Falls Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) facility being developed by Enbridge and Walker Industries. When fully operational, the plant will be the largest of its kind in Ontario and generate sufficient renewable energy from landfill waste/biogas to heat 8,750 homes and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 48,000 tpy.

    The Ontario Energy Board has also approved an application from Enbridge to implement a pilot Voluntary Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) Program in Ontario starting in 2021. Through the program, customers can choose to support the transition to clean energy through a small monthly contribution to purchase carbon-neutral renewable natural gas. During the first five years of the program, Enbridge Gas anticipates up to 28,000 customers could participate in the program.

    The Board notes "Encouraging investments and innovative clean, renewable energy programs are part of the Ontario government's Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help Canada meet its 2030 target."

    Enbridge, Hydrogenics Launch Power-to-Gas Energy Storage Facility (Ind. Report)
    Enbridge, Hydrogenics
    Date: 2018-07-18
    Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc. and Hydrogenics Corporation are reporting the launch of North America's first major hydrogen energy storage facility in Markham, Ontario.

    The 2.5 MW facility uses technology developed and manufactured in Mississauga, Ontario by Hydrogenics. It was designed and built on a 5-MW scalable platform that incorporates Hydrogenic's next-generation PEM electrolyzer technology. The facility provides the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) of Ontario with a fast-responding resource to enhance the flexibility and reliability of operating the grid. Regulation service corrects for short-term changes in electricity use and helps compensate for real-time supply and demand imbalances.

    The hydrogen produced can also be used for a number of purposes such as fuelling cars and trains, or blended into the natural gas system to offset traditional natural gas.
