The mandate of our Environmental Innovation Fund is to make investments in projects that economically improve the environmental performance of the natural gas sector through developing and implementing innovative technology.
Our investment strategy is two-tiered:
Alphabet Energy is commercializing inexpensive, modular and scalable waste-heat recovery technology. This technology, which generates power from exhaust gas, shows great promise in delivering reliable and inexpensive reductions in fuel costs and emissions by offsetting power demand.
ICRTec’s ICR350™ turbine engine is replacement for diesel engines in a variety of mobile and stationary markets, including heavy duty truck transportation, oil and gas production and data centers. The engine, which has the ability to switch from natural gas to diesel on the fly, generates very little in the way of emissions and offers impressive fuel efficiency and reliability.
This two-year project is designed to demonstrate and validate continuously variable transmission for use with diesel-powered electrical generators and variable fan speed systems for compressor cooling packages.
This 18-month project will develop and demonstrate a small-scale integrated fuel cell power system for cold weather start-up and operations. These systems, which use methanol and water to produce hydrogen, could complement the approximately 10,000 solar panels Encana uses throughout our Canadian and U.S. operations.
Seal Well Inc. has begun a project to develop equipment for sealing oil and gas wells with high-integrity plugs. The goal of the project is to help prevent hydrocarbon leakage from abandoned wells.
The purpose of PTAC's (Petroleum Technology Alliance Canada) Shallow Gas De-Watering Pump Consortium is to demonstrate the technical performance of a shallow gas de-watering pump under simulated and actual field conditions in order to assist in the commercialization of new low-cost reliable pumps for shallow gas wells.
Atlantic Hydrogen's CarbonSaver® is a patented plasma technology that removes some of the carbon from natural gas pre-combustion, leaving a hydrogen-enriched natural gas (HENG) stream. Not only does HENG reduce carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide output of devices that burn natural gas, it also improves efficiency.
