Dan Chapman


Corporate Expert in Emerging Renewable Energy Technologies, 
TransAlta

Dan Chapman is focused on bringing energy storage solutions to Alberta through his efforts with NRStor, a leading energy storage project developer. In addition to Alberta advocacy and business development efforts, he is currently managing microgrid projects combining renewables and storage to decrease diesel-fired generation in remote northern communities.

While working for TransAlta, Dan was regarded as their corporate expert in emerging renewable energy technologies, and has served as a panelist for sessions covering energy storage and new technologies at IPPSA, Alberta Power Symposium, and Carbon Management Canada conferences. He advised senior management regarding disruptive technologies and drove initiatives leading to TransAlta's entrance into solar via a 21 MW portfolio acquisition. He originated, and managed development of the 10 MW Alberta wind-sited Tesla battery project, winning $11 million of CCEMC funding toward the initiative. While employed at ENMAX, Dan gained experience with hydroelectric and wind plant operations and project management.

Dan has become increasingly involved in Calgary's innovation community through Innovate Calgary's Greentech Mentor program and will continue to work with government and community stakeholders to assess and promote energy storage solutions.
