Clean Technology Business Innovation (CTBI) Voucher Program

Alberta businesses can be improved and use clean technology as a growth strategy; however, a significant barrier to clean technology adoption is in-depth market knowledge and a plan specific to each business with decision-making support.

The Clean Technology Business Innovation (CTBI) Voucher program is designed to encourage and support Alberta’s established Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to pursue growth opportunities in the low carbon economy by:

  • identifying productivity and growth opportunities through holistic business audits and plans that lead to:
    • low carbon technology adoption for industrial efficiency, and/or productivity enhancement; and/or
    • product or service iterations and/or new geographical or vertical market entry into low carbon industries;
  • providing non-dilutive funding to implement plans and connection to other leveraged funding and supports such as the Accelerated Growth Services program delivered by the federal government.

With the help of Alberta Innovates Technology Development Advisors (TDAs), those SMEs which have demonstrated commercial success, a strong management team and a desire to pursue significant growth opportunities in low carbon economy, will determine if this program is right for them.
