    Dispatchable renewables

    The Government of Alberta has tasked the AESO with assessing how dispatchable renewables and energy storage could benefit the province’s electricity system as it transitions towards 30 per cent renewables generation by 2030.

    The AESO coordinated this assessment with ongoing capacity market design work and future Renewable Electricity Program competitions.

    The results were provided to the Government of Alberta on May 31, 2018.

    Stakeholder questionnaire 

    In Q1 2018, stakeholders were invited to provide their views on dispatchable renewables and storage in Alberta. The AESO thanks all those organizations and individuals that submitted responses.

    The detailed observations and insights provided by survey respondents indicate a wide range of stakeholder experience, encompassing projects around the world and across a spectrum of technologies.

    These submissions have been carefully reviewed, and will help inform the AESO’s report to the Government of Alberta. This assessment is now in development, and will be submitted at the end of May 2018.

    A high-level summary of the survey results can be found below. The AESO takes no position on any of the comments provided by stakeholders.

    Additional resources

    In 2013, the AESO explored how energy storage could improve the grid without compromising reliability and efficiency.
