An initiative to replace diesel generators presently operating in remote communities in Northern Canada, First Nations communities, and the U.S. has been launched by American Vanadium. The company has also appointed Robert Nault to spearhead the project, who will lend the experience and expertise gained during his tenure as the Canadian Minister of Aboriginal Affairs. The project is of major significance for American Vanadium, who only this year inked a deal with redox flow battery manufacturer Gildemeister to market the latter’s CellCube battery storage technology in America.
Executive Chairman of American Vanadium Ron MacDonald explained that “currently there are hundreds of communities across the United States and Canada that are operating off grid and relying on very expensive diesel generation”. Robert McNault said he is taking this opportunity “to offer renewable energy generation as a viable means for meeting community needs, as well as contributing to Canada’s future electrical supply to serve First Nations.”
