Smart Energy Community projects in Canada •

Quest Smart Community Map

Community applications: Storage, microgrids, EV integration, demand management, customer enabling

Shift to more regional and community planning •

Coordinated planning between utilities and communities



Utility strategies and planning for services becoming more customer-driven



Growing attention on urban microgrids for increased reliability, resiliency and energy security



Focus on the North; reducing emissions and fuel costs for remote communities

Summerside Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) for Wind Integration Prince Edward Island, Canada



City of Summerside 2005 Strategic Plan:  



12 MW wind farm built in 2009 by City of Summerside with power purchase agreement ($0.08 / kWh)  

Summerside Electric Co. • Municipally owned utility • 14 751 population, 7 161 customers • ~127 GWh annual consumption, 25 MW peak in 2013. • Production, transmission & distribution • 46 % of generation is local from wind (West Cape wind farm: 9 MW, Summerside: 12 MW wind farm) • 54 % generation comes from neighbouring province at import prices

Become 100 % green city (wind farm) Summerside should become a smart city

In some situations (20% of the time) all electricity need for Summerside is from wind In 2010 produced on average 15 % excess electricity beyond city demand (8 500 000 kWh)  Market prices ~ $0.03-$0.05 / kWh meant net losses for Summerside Electric (~ $300 000 annually)



Customer heating prices (2002 – 2011) 



10 % residential and commercial heating from electricity 90 % residential and commercial heating from fossil fuels

Summerside Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) for Wind Integration: Deployment Zone 1: Heat for Less Now! - 2012 Zones 2- 11: MyPowerNet - 2013 1. Zone 1 – R&D, mainly residential fibre (2012) 2. Zone 2 – residential & commercial fibre (2013) 3. Zones 3-11 – currently off-peak charging, scheduled fibre (2018) Customer savings: • CO2 emissions ↓ 42 % • ↓ heating and hot water costs by 35 % • 99 % customer satisfaction

Mainly residential

Commercial & residential

201 units, 4 700 000 kWh of ETS deployed as of Apr 2014

MyPowerNet Vision: Utility savings: • Reduce exports, increase off-peak sales • • • •

2010 exports: 8 500 MWh 2011 exports: 7 443 MWh 2012 exports: 4 103 MWh 2013 exports: 3 363 MWh

1. Passing wind farm benefits to residents 2. Creating additional revenue for the utility 3. Create economic development opportunities

Enablers for the small smart city



 Become 100 % green city (wind farm)  Summerside should become a smart city (ETS heating)

Market incentive structure: • Summerside electricity rates are capped at the province’s utility rates. • Incentive: if it’s possible to purchase or generate electricity at lower rates than the provincial utility, all the profits go back into the community. • Result: the city can raise funds for its own projects.

ETS Funding ($2 M total project, fully funded): • Green Municipal Fund • Reserve from wind pilot Wind Funding ($30 M total project): • Municipal Rural Infrastructure fund (federal + provincial) • Federal gas tax rebate • Green Municipal Fund • Building Canada Fund (federal + provincial) • Municipal Infrastructure Lending

Summerside 2005 Strategic Plan





amongst other economic, social and environmental objectives...

Pilot program (100 homes)  Successful but full fibre deployment seemed too costly ($9 M)  City Council initial vote to continue (4:4)



Rebranded: MyPowerNet (<1000 homes)  Engage local contractors Environmental  Put emphasis on electricity as opposed to communications network  Explore other economic strategies with fibre network (knowledge economy)  City Council Socialfinal vote (8:0) Economic
