REMI: Using AI for emissions reduction

REMI Collage.png

Are you ready to be a leader in AI adoption for emission reduction?

We are currently seeking applicants for the Reducing Emissions through Machine Intelligence (REMI) program.

Accelerated solutions to complex problems

Methane is a potent greenhouse gas with more than 70 times the climate warming impact of carbon dioxide over a 20-year timespan. Reducing methane pollution is an essential pillar of Canada’s climate plan: a plan that includes a rigorous target of reducing emissions by 40-45% below 2012 levels by 2025 with hefty fines for missing the mark.

To meet these targets, government and industry are looking for new and innovative ways to reduce emissions and all eyes are on AI.

That’s where we come in.

Amii’s Reducing Emissions through Machine Intelligence (REMI) program provides an opportunity to harness the power of AI to accelerate your organization's emissions reduction strategy.

Reducing emissions through machine intelligence

The REMI program is designed to help startups, SMEs, and enterprises use AI technology to make better decisions about how to most effectively reduce greenhouse gases while also improving operations and increasing revenue.

Organizations selected to participate in the REMI program are coached on how to adopt AI for emissions reduction for their business by:

  • Assisting in identifying and describing critical opportunities for emissions reduction through AI;
  • Providing ongoing business and technical education in foundational and applied AI; and
  • Acting as advisors and mentors to support your company to employ AI to reduce emissions.

Upon completion, program participants are able to broadly apply new skills and knowledge in AI and ML to further increase business effectiveness in areas outside of emission reduction.

The REMI program is made possible through the support of the Government of Alberta’s Ministry of Environment and Parks TIER Program. Through that grant, we are able to offer highly subsidized pricing for participants from Alberta.

Who should apply?

AI presents huge opportunities in diverse areas of the energy sector. REMI is highly applicable to companies from the following sectors and beyond:

  • Traditional oil and gas producers and service providers
  • Methane emissions measurement service providers
  • Renewable energy industry
  • Smart buildings industry
  • Power industry
  • Agriculture companies

A Phased Approach

We take a phased approach to set your team up for success at each crucial junction of your project - from ideation to proof-of-concept model.

The 6-month program is structured to help you form a business case for investing in AI adoption for your management and investment team. With clear outcomes and progress at each milestone.

  • Phase 1: Foundations [5 weeks]

    Participants gain foundational AI knowledge and create a roadmap for potential AI projects focused on GHG reduction and beyond. This programming phase includes hands-on training opportunities and facilitated sessions with a multi-disciplinary team of project managers, scientists, educators and domain experts.

  • Phase 2: Commitments [6 weeks]

    Companies define, specify and scope a machine learning (ML) emissions reduction project; and mitigate the risk of introducing AI and ML projects into various operations, processes and business lines.

  • Phase 3: GHG Reduction [16 weeks]

    Over 16-weeks, Amii guides your team as they de-risk and remove barriers for applied ML projects. Amii supports an organization’s technical team as they advance specific projects to a proof of concept model. Your AI/ML team will work with Amii ML Project Managers and Scientists, who provide advice and guidance as the project moves through various stages of the ML lifecycle with the ultimate goal to move your company along the AI adoption spectrum.
