Analysis of the economic, environmental and social implications of energy storage

In order to assist the successful implementation of the Alberta Climate Leadership Plan (ACLP), a study aimed at the viability of energy storage technology will be conducted. The ACLP has set forth plans to completely phase out coal power generation, and achieve 30 percent renewable power by 2030. This new, made in Alberta, energy plan is aligned with the goals and beliefs of EQUS. As a leader in environmental stewardship, many of EQUS’s cooperative members are early adapters of renewable energy generation.

Mixed Medium Drilling with a Single Bit – Drilling from Whipstock to TD

Oil and gas in tight formations with low porosity and/or permeability are often accessed using horizontal wells. In certain scenarios multiple horizontals are drilled from a single wellbore to create a multilateral well to increase production potential without the need for larger surface facilities. In drilling multilaterals, a retrievable whipstock assembly is used to kick off each additional horizontal.

Responsible Development of Unconventional Hydrocarbon Reserves

Unconventional oil and gas resources are currently a significant portion of global oil and gas production and it is anticipated to continue its growth as production from conventional resources decline. Unconventional oil and gas resources include low permeability (“tight” resources e.g. shale), heavy oil and oil sands reservoirs amongst others. Economic and responsible development of these unconventional resources is a priority for society, governments and industry.

The impact of correlations on VaR

Energy companies are in the business of turning energy from one form into another. For example, a gas-fired power station turns chemical potential energy stored in the natural gas into electrical energy. A natural gas storage facility allows energy (held in the form of natural gas) to be stored at one point in time and recovered at a later time. A gas pipeline moves energy from one location to another. The result is that the financial risks faced by an energy company involve a large portfolio of spreads – differences between energy prices.

Development of new techniques for power system model validation and calibration

Dynamic modeling is one of the most important tools for the power system operation and planning purposes. In order to study the behavior of the system, which is subjected to disturbances, a valid knowledge of parameters of system components is essentially required. The objective of this project is to propose an applicable algorithm to identify the parameters of the power system components’ models. For the identification purpose, the actual power systems’ subsections data collected by phasor measurement units (PMUs) are employed.

Performance Analysis of a Network of Dual-Lane Roundabouts

Modern roundabouts have become a subject of great interest and attention over the last few years. Compared to regular signalized intersections, roundabouts have the potential to reduce vehicular delay & emissions and increase safety. The objectives of this study is to conduct an in depth analysis to examine the short and long term benefits of roundabouts from a multi modal perspective.

Evaluation and Identification of Gaps and Technical Challenges in Candidate Carbon Capture/CO2 Conversion Technologies Part 2

In the wake of the Paris meeting on global climate change in December of 2015 (COP21), commitments to drive down greenhouse gas emissions have escalated around the world. Man-made carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are accepted as the largest contributor to climate change. Promising next-generation technologies for decreasing CO2 emissions are being investigated at the lab scale. Unfortunately, the technology developers often lack next-step projects and connections with industrial end-users to allow the technology to advance and become commercialized.

An Integrated Mobile Communication Environment for Healthcare Professionals and Patients: Analysis, Prediction and Recommendation

Think Tank Innovations Ltd is a company active in the healthcare domain. The company is interested in expanding their current working system Sharesmart application by benefiting from advanced technology to develop an integrated environment for healthcare solutions in order to better service a wider community locally and globally. Students to be involved in this project will build a data repository to host data to be collected, cleaned, built, integrated and processed for knowledge discovery which will guide more focused decision making.

Advanced Analytics for Credit Unions

The worldwide data explosion would emphasize on importance of knowledge discovery from massive, heterogeneous, and dynamic volumes of information (Big Data). Similar to other industrial organizations, Credit union industry deals with massive amounts of structured (e.g. customer demographics and transactional data) and unstructured (e.g. email, social media data, comments) data which they have not utilised well to be able to proactively offer their products and services according to their customer needs.
