The Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia have teamed up to support the development of pre-commercial clean energy projects and technologies.
What is it all about?
A focus on clean technology, innovation and growth is a core element of the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change. Through the Framework, Canada will focus on having globally competitive Canadian businesses as we transition to a low-carbon economy.
The Province of British Columbia and the Government of Canada are working together to spur the development and pre-commercial demonstration of new technologies that will reduce emissions and create jobs for Canadians.
The funding available through this joint fund leverages federal, provincial and private sector investments. A $20-million provincial contribution comes from the Province of British Columbia’s Innovative Clean Energy (ICE) Fund and is matched by the SD Tech Fund.
The ICE Fund and SDTC are conducting a joint call over a three-year continuous intake period to seek out clean-energy projects and technologies that will mitigate or avoid greenhouse gas emissions, including prototype deployment, field testing and commercial-scale demonstration projects in the province of British Columbia.
Projects must demonstrate how the proposed project will result in GHG reductions, commercialization, and economic growth in that province and Canada. Interested private sector companies are required to develop consortium partnerships—which may include entities such as potential customers, technology co-developers and academic institutions—to obtain funding.
