Canada Launches New Clean Energy Innovation Initiative


The government of Canada has launched its ecoENERGY Innovation Initiative. The C$97 million program will invest in research, development and demonstration projects for clean energy technologies.

‘Support for clean energy technology is an effective way to both reduce emissions and create high-quality jobs for Canadians,’ says Joe Oliver, Canada's minister of natural resources.

Selected projects will focus on research, development and demonstration in five areas: energy efficiency in buildings, communities, industry and transportation; clean electricity and renewables; bioenergy; electric vehicles; and unconventional oil and gas.
