FREDERICTON, NB, May 10, 2019/CNW/ – One of the greatest opportunities for the Government of Canada is shifting toward clean growth. So in New Brunswick Power service territory is gonna try some things. Things to combat climate change because Canada needs new and innovative approaches to electricity distribution. That is why the Government of Canada is funding an energy infrastructure project in New Brunswick. One that will help lower carbon pollution. As well as increase economic competitiveness while protecting the environment.
Member of Parliament Matt DeCourcey, on behalf of Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, announced a $1-million contribution for a research and demonstration project with New Brunswick Power.
This project will test conservation voltage reduction (CVR) as a potential solution to help customers conserve more energy, quantify energy savings and look at methods to increase renewable energy use on the provincial power grid. New Brunswick Power will collect and analyze data from volunteer residents and businesses. All to assess how CVR can find efficiencies and money savings for customers. The 12-month project will include the winter peak and the summer cooling peak seasons.
In addition, funding for this project will be provided by Natural Resources Canada’s Energy Innovation Program.
Consequently and throughGeneration Energy,Canada’snational energy dialogue, Canadians expressed that they wantCanadato continue to be a leader in the transition to a clean growth economy.Canadawill also continue to support innovative projects that create jobs. As well as improve industry competitiveness, cut pollution and act on climate change.
This federal–provincial partnership supports the commitment by the Atlantic premiers and the Government ofCanadato develop a Clean Power Roadmap forAtlantic Canada.
The global shift toward a cleaner, greener economy is the opportunity of a lifetime. FromMay 27 to 29, 2019,Canadawill welcome over 25 countries to this year’s Clean Energy Ministerial and Mission Innovation Ministerial to discuss a future that is cleaner, brighter and more prosperous for generations to come.Canadawill showcase its leadership in cleantech innovation. As well as champion the issues of gender equality, youth and Indigenous people. All as a result in clean energy and promoteCanadaas an investment destination.

“Smart investments in electricity infrastructure build a stronger and more resilient grid and will foster better connections between communities. Incorporating dynamic voltage control technologies and strategies will increase renewable energy use, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and bring down the energy costs for Canadian homes and businesses.”
Member of Parliament forFrederictonand Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship
“As we continue to transition to a low-carbon economy, we are looking at different ways to help our customers conserve energy and save money. Through this research and demonstration, NB Power will be able to evaluate in real time, when voltage is reduced, the degree to which certain devices will consume less energy than at higher voltages, creating net energy conservation. The goal is to then use the results of this research to support the development and planning for future CVR deployment initiatives in the province.”

1. Through theInvesting inCanadainfrastructure plan, the Government ofCanadais investing more than$180 billionover 12 years. All in public transit projects, green infrastructure, social infrastructure, trade and transportation routes. Finally andCanada’srural and northern communities.
2. Along with the recently announced Smart Grid Atlantic Project funded by Innovation Science and Economic Development Canada, the Collaborative Grid Innovation for Atlantic Smart Energy Communities project will encourage investment and innovation to help build a smart grid hub in the region.
