Oil and gas well drillers want federal funding to help industry decarbonize Globalnews.ca

"...The drilling sector's emissions reduction efforts have not been as high-profile as those of the oilsands industry, which is proposing a $16. 5-billion carbon capture and storage project in northern Alberta that it says will help it reach net-zero emissions from production by 2050. But Scholz said there are many things oil and gas drillers can do to lower their carbon footprint, from rig electrification to hydrogen fuel blending to investing in battery energy storage systems for oil well drilling sites..."

City of Edmonton's electric bus fleet plagued with issues, over half not in service

"...Many of the drivers would ask to be switched off the electric bus shifts and have filed complaints with the Workers Compensation Board, the union said. The electric vehicles only make up a small percentage of the city's 1,000-bus fleet, but more than half aren't on the road. The city paid more than $1 million for each bus and ordered 60 from U..."

IEA report warns oil and gas companies against banking on carbon capture Globalnews.ca

"...In a report released Thursday, the Paris-based IEA said oil and gas companies need to start “letting go of the illusion” that “implausibly large” amounts of carbon capture are the solution to the global climate crisis. Carbon capture and storage refers to the use of technology to sequester harmful greenhouse gas emissions from industrial processes and store them safely underground. In Canada, carbon capture and storage has become a key pillar of the oil and gas sector's decarbonization goals..."

Ontario funding projects aimed at using hydrogen to power electricity grid Globalnews.ca

"...The bulk of the funding is going to Atura Power to blend hydrogen with natural gas — up to 15 per cent by volume — to produce electricity at its Halton Hills Generating Station. The government says it will be the largest electricity-based, grid-connected, low-carbon hydrogen blending project in Canada's history. Energy Minister Todd Smith says it will help produce an even more sustainable energy system..."
