Global can help clients understand the complexity of the Alberta electricity and transmission markets. We advise on the most economical means to secure electricity supply and evaluate load profiles and consumption.
We can advise on onsite generation decisions. Many oil & gas producers and industrial interests could benefit from onsite generation with electrical loads as small is 1,200 kilowatts; which will commonly be at a lower delivered cost and greater reliability than grid sourced electricity, potentially lead to long term cash flows and diversify away from a single commodity exposure.
Global can help start the generation evaluation process with a scoping study that will determine if the client site is economically suitable for onsite distributed generation. Global has relationships with third-party power plant developers seeking good locations with gas production to locate distributed generation scaled power plants. Further infrastructure needs other than power generation for the client may be financeable through Global’s relationships with infrastructure funds.
