ERA’s ESB launches Extended Technologies Pilot; updates Measures List
By Anthony Capkun
February 22, 2022 – Emissions Reduction Alberta’s ESB program (Energy Savings for Business) has launched an Extended Technologies Pilot.
ETP offers a new path for Alberta businesses “to propose effective, commercially available technologies not currently supported through ESB that could offer high return on investment”.
Successful proposals will receive funding to support project implementation, says ESB, and will help expand ERA’s understanding of the technology’s performance, market potential, and how it could be best supported in future initiatives.
Meantime, the ESB program says it regularly receives requests for additional measures or sizes of existing technologies. As such, the ESB program has released updates to the Measures List.
As of December 20, 2021, ESB has included:
• New size categories for LED agricultural top lighting
• New direct contact water heater measures
• Expanded CHP eligibility for smaller projects
• Updated requirements for RTU projects
There are also a number of small clarifying changes, applicable to several measures, adds ESB.
