NPC is currently evaluating modular LNG power solutions as a cost effective alternative to diesel generated power plants in remote coastal regions of Canada.

Clenergen said it is delivering off-grid electricity using small biomass gasification power plants ranging in capacity from 250 KW to 2 MW.

The joint venture will initially focus on sites that can be connected to the national grid, which generate either hydro or wind electricity, and can provide opportunity for commercial scale projects

The deal is expected to help Ontario meet growing energy requirements.

Biomass will be produced by growing Miscanthus grass that has been cloned to adapt to the Canadian climate, averaging 17 tons per acre, with a life expectancy estimated at 17 years.

Clenergen offers clean energy generation and supply of biomass feedstock to address the requirement for renewable and sustainable supplies of electricity.
