Online Presentation

Title - Demonstration of a Utility-Scale Wind-Solar-Battery Hybrid
The Cowessess Renewable Energy and Storage project was initially commissioned in 2013 and consisted of one 800-kW Enercon E53 wind turbine, and one 400-kW/744-kWh Saft lithium ion battery. Its purpose was to prove the reliability and benefits associated with co-located storage with renewables. In 2019 a 500-kW solar array was added to the site to further investigate the innate smoothening effect of wind and solar generation, and how it can be further support by storage. The EMTF presentation will focus on the analysis and results of the research.

Ryan Jansen, M.Sc., P.Eng. - Jansen received a B. Sc. in Engineering Physics, and an M. Sc. from the University of Saskatchewan in Electrical Engineering with a focus on microgrid reliability.  He is a Professional Engineer and works as a Senior Research Engineer at the Saskatchewan Research Council.  Ryan has experience in project management, as well as technical expertise in renewable energy systems, energy storage, remote monitoring systems, programming, microgrids, electric vehicles, and district heating systems. Most recently, he has been working on hybrid energy system product development with a focus on deep decarbonization.
