- Our Business
TransCanada continuously invests in research and development to encourage environmentally beneficial technologies and techniques. The pipelines, gas storage facilities and power plants we own and operate are considered to be among the most technologically advanced in the industry.
Our track record of implementing innovative technologies and solutions to meet customer needs spans more than 60 years, and we continue to dedicate significant research and development to supporting our responsibility to our communities, safety and the environment.
In 2013, TransCanada invested over $22 million in R&D projects, with nearly $620,000 earmarked for health, safety and environmental issues. Since the 1970s, we have set the standard for state-of-the-art high strength steels and today deploy the highest strength steels in the market. We're also working with Rolls Royce to develop reliable high-efficiency turbines to significantly reduce fuel consumption and GHG emissions.
