PAMI Supporting NRCan’s Energy Innovation Program

The Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute (PAMI) can support applicants of the Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) Energy Innovation Program (EIP) by providing research and development (R&D) services, conducting demonstration projects, and front-end engineering design (FEED) studies.

THE ENERGY INNOVATION PROGRAM

The Government of Canada has made a strong commitment to energy technology innovation that reduces greenhouse gas emissions by generating and using energy cleanly and efficiently. To support that commitment, NRCan has a call for proposals under the Energy Innovation Program (EIP) in the following strategic areas:biosgas_pic

  • Renewable, smart grid and storage systems
  • Reducing diesel use by industrial operations in northern and remote communities
  • Addressing emissions of methane and volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the building sector
  • Carbon capture, use, and storage
  • Improving industrial efficiency

The final date for submissions is October 31, 2016. Specific program details can be found at NRCan’s website.

PAMI’S COMMITMENT TO CLEAN ENERGY

PAMI’s Applied Bioenergy Centre works with NRCan, the agricultural community, and academia to develop bioenergy sources and advance new and existing mechanical technologies to harvest, process, densify, and convert biomass into energy. Past collaborations involved

  • anaerobic digestion,
  • biomass densification, yield trials, and life cycle logistic studies,
  • demonstration of pilot-scale plants, and
  • verification of new technologies.

COLLABORATING WITH PAMI

Should EIP applicants require engineering and biosystem support, PAMI’s key capabilities include

  • project management,
  • multi discipline engineering – technical readiness levels 2 – 9,
  • biosystems research,
  • technology testing and demonstration, and
  • economic analysis.

If you are interested in collaborating with PAMI on your EIP application or any bioenergy or bioproduct related project, please contact Dr. Joy Agnew (jagnew@pami.ca) or 1-800-567-7624 ext 280.
