Optimizing Generation Efficiency

Reducing Emissions and Improving Thermal Generation Efficiency

As part of our pathway to be net zero by 2045, we’re working to optimize our thermal assets to improve efficiency and environmental performance. We invest our time and expertise to ensure all our facilities achieve operational excellence and reliably support our communities, businesses and critical services with responsible power. Some examples of our initiatives include:

At our Genesee Generating Station in Alberta, we’ve implemented our industry-leading Genesee Performance Standard (GPS), an efficiency improvement program to reduce carbon emissions. The program targets a 12% reduction in emissions by 2023 in the lead up to our facility-wide transition off coal that year – nearly 6 years ahead of government mandate.

At our Decatur Energy Center in Alabama, we’ve upgraded the facility’s three combustion turbines to increase capacity, improve heat rate and fuel efficiency, and maintain reliability. The upgrades resulted in 90 MW of additional capacity for the facility and are also expected to improve environmental performance through reduced emissions. These upgrades contributed to a 10-year extension to our existing contract for the site through 2032.
