Ermineskin Cree Nation and Varme Energy Announce Working Committee to Invest in Alberta’s First Waste-to-Energy Facilities

EDMONTON, Alberta , November 23 /Businesswire/ - Neyaskweyahk Group of Companies and Edmonton-based Varme Energy have announced a Joint Working Agreement to collaborate to fund and construct the first waste-to-energy facility in Alberta.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:

Ermineskin Cree Nation, located just south of Wetaskiwin, is eager to explore the opportunity to invest in leading-edge facilities that will create jobs, reduce emissions, generate energy, and shrink landfills, using technology that has had decades of success in Europe.

“Our nation is focused on building a strong and vibrant economy that will support our families for generations to come. We’re looking forward to working in partnership with Varme Energy to identify investment opportunities that support bringing waste-to-energy technology to Canada at scale.” – Maureen Ward, CEO, Neyaskweyahk Group of Companies.

Varme Energy is the Canadian subsidiary of Green Transition Holdings, a Norway-based company with extensive experience developing waste-to-energy facilities in Europe. Varme Energy is bringing that wealth of experience to Canada to develop leading edge waste-to-energy facilities with carbon capture and storage that can generate energy and feed district energy systems while eliminating methane emissions from landfills.

“This technology has been tested and proven in Europe for decades – it’s time for Canada to catch up if we hope to meet our national emissions targets. Ermineskin Cree Nation is a fantastic partner for our company, and we look forward to developing our partnership and vision as we move forward together.” – Sean Collins, CEO Varme Energy.

This Joint Working Agreement is an exciting step forward for these collaborative partners to create economic opportunity and reduce emissions from waste and eliminate the need for landfills.
