For many, it’s the next logical step for smart grid technology.
Distributed energy + distributed controls = distributed benefits.
Pacific Future Energy plans to build and operate the world's greenest refinery on British Columbia's north coast. The $10 billion refinery is being designed to be built in modules, each processing 200,000 barrels of bitumen per day. The bitumen will be converted into gasoline, diesel, kerosene and other distillates. When all of the project modules are complete, the facility will process up to 1,000,000 barrels per day, starting with the first phase of 200,000 barrels per day.
