Advancing ATCO'S energy future with renewable solutions
Critical to our energy transition strategy is the development and integration of renewable energy and battery storage solutions. Understanding the long-term benefits of innovative, green solutions, ATCO has invested in alternative and renewable energy solutions for 30 years. We enable the transition to cleaner fuels and electricity, without sacrificing the safety, reliability or affordability of energy. Solutions are driven by innovative technologies that will be integrated into a modern energy infrastructure.
ATCO is actively growing its renewable energy expertise and portfolio, including providing cleaner energy solutions to the communities we serve. To ensure the reliability of energy now and in the future, our strategy is to pursue cleaner fuels, renewable energy and energy efficiency improvements, while maintaining existing and investing in new and replacement infrastructure. Including hydroelectricity and solar, 23 per cent of our power generation is from renewable energy.
From an ATCO Electric perspective, advancing the use of solar generation and energy storage to reduce isolated diesel generation facilities in remote communities is an important part of our strategy. As the global energy landscape continues to change at a rapid pace, ATCO Electric is committed to leading the transformation by enabling the transition to a lower emitting future, understanding that secure, reliable and affordable energy underpins the economic vitality of our communities. Our job is to bridge the gap between the two through long-term collaboration with our customers and sustainable, innovative solutions. Our broad range of solar expertise encourages a holistic approach to developing renewables now and into the future. ATCO Electric will continue to invest in solar generation to modernize our infrastructure, increasing grid reliability using a renewable energy source that reduces our environmental impact.
The following projects demonstrate ATCO Electric’s commitment to advance the transition to a lower emitting future for our customers and the community through the use of solar generation and energy storage.
