REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS: Onshore Nova Scotia Subsurface Energy Storage Assessment and Gap Analysis

Net Zero Atlantic on behalf of Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources and Renewables is requesting proposals for completion of an assessment and gap analysis of the subsurface energy storage potential of Onshore Nova Scotia. 

The upload link and other instructions can be found in the RFP document provided below.

Primary goals for proposals to meet include: 

  • Goal 1 – Compiling existing geoscience data relevant to subsurface energy storage including porosity, permeability, and fluid pressures, and assessing suitability for potentially storing energy products like hydrogen, carbon dioxide, compressed air and natural gas in candidate reservoirs.
  • Goal 2 – Evaluating subsurface energy storage in other jurisdictions and highlighting analogs and lessons learned that are relevant to Nova Scotia opportunities.
  • Goal 3 – Identifying data gaps and knowledge gaps for Nova Scotia’s onshore energy storage opportunities and recommending technical next steps for further de-risking of the resource potential.
