ENERGY STORAGE AND RECOVERY ONTARIO FUNDING ANNOUNCED
The Honorable John Gerretsen on behalf of the Ministry of Research and Innovation announced $1,503,600 in funding from the Ontario Research Fund - Research Excellence program for the Energy Storage and Recovery Ontario (ESARO) project, which will develop technologies to help in managing the variability of solar and wind power generation.
The project team is led by Dr. Brant Peppley, Queen's University and includes researchers from Queen's University (Dr. Dominik Barz, Dr. Pascale Champagne, Dr. Boyd Davis, Dr. Philip Jessop, Dr. Kunal Karan, Dr. Warren Mabee, Dr. Jon Pharoah), Royal Military College of Canada (Dr. Cecile Malardier-Jugroot, Dr. Chris Thurgood), the University of Waterloo (Dr. Michael Fowler), and the University of Western Ontario (Dr. Andy Sun).
“Our project will allow society to use renewable energy more effectively and will create an opportunity for Ontario to manufacture energy systems that complement renewable energy. These energy systems could then be exported to many countries in the world, increasing the global use of intermittent wind and solar energy,” says Dr. Peppley, Director of the Queen’s-RMC Fuel Cell Research Centre and the Canada Research Chair in Fuel Cells.
