Problem 3: Remote power
We are continuing in our series on three main problems with the way we do power
This is part three: remote power
Did you know that in Canada 200,000 people are disconnected from the electrical grid and natural gas distribution system?
Because of the remoteness of these locations, power can cost as much as $1/kWh
Additionally, most of this power generation is powered by diesel which produces carbon intensive power.
Communities aren’t limited simply to the north but are anywhere where geography or high CAPEX to install infrastructure prevents simple and easy connection.
What are ways that Collicutt can help promote communities and operations combat these problems?
Collicutt is champion a technology called Combined Heat and Power which uses clean and cheap liquefied natural gas to generate power and heat at remote locations.
By swapping out diesel for LNG, the cost of fuel can be reduced dramatically and the overall carbon output per unit of energy can be dropped swiftly.
In communities where logistics is complicated and diesel generation is the only option, Collicutt has designed and installed diesel powered CHP facilities where the heat can be effectively recovered from the engine and can offset other fuels required to provide heating: whether that is propane or heating oil.#CollicuttEnergy #PowerGeneration
