Scott Balfour emphasizes the close connection between innovation and creating a cleaner energy system. He shares this perspective in the announcement that Emera Technologies Limited, a subsidiary of Emera Inc., and NOVONIX Limited, a leading battery materials and technology company in Halifax, successfully delivered their first-of-its-kind, custom-designed microgrid battery prototype. The prototype is designed to support Emera Technologies’ residential microgrid system, BlockEnergy, currently operating in a residential pilot project in Florida. This enables rooftop solar power to be stored and dispersed to the nearby community through smart distributed controls.

“Innovation and emerging technologies will be key to shaping a viable path to a cleaner energy future, particularly as we work toward our vision to achieve net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050.”

Scott Balfour, President and Chief Executive Officer, Emera Inc.
