Development of a Distributed Energy Management Initiative (DEMI)

This project aims to collaborate with Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT), ATCO, and Siemens, this is part of the project of Distributed Energy Management Initiative (DEMI). It aims to leverage the research capability at the University of Alberta as well as the research facilities at different partners to support Alberta businesses and utilities as they develop and deploy innovative solutions in today’s smart grids with high percentage of power electronics enabled renewable energy, more efficient loads, energy storages, thereby helping Alberta transition to a low carbon electricity grid. The focus of this project on life cycle assessment of technologies developed under DEMI.
