Join us on Friday March 15 for a webinar. We will address the Canadian Emissions Reduction Innovation Network (CERIN), how to apply, and answer any questions you may have.

The Clean Technology Facilities Support program will provide funding to help create new facilities or enhance the existing facilities to fill technical capacity gaps in Alberta’s research and innovation system in the priority sectors for GHG emission reduction, economic growth and diversification.
Facilities funding is intended to:

  • support technology infrastructure in priority areas – cleaner oil and gas production, GHG emissions reductions, low-carbon electricity, green-building materials, and waste to value-added products;
  • deliver technical supports for testing, prototyping, demonstration, validation, and certification; of new products or techniques; and
  • provide technical training and personnel opportunities.

The program will support new development and technical upgrades of existing facilities that align with these 5 themes:
