$65M in funding available for Alberta-based GHG reduction projects
CCEMC looking for projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, are transferable to Alberta
EDMONTON—The not-for-profit Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation (CCEMC) is accepting funding submissions for projects that help Alberta reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
The Alberta-based organization said it will dole out as much as $65-million for the province-specific projects, with a maximum of $25-million per project.
“The CCEMC is interested in finding the best ideas from around the world to help Alberta stimulate the development of transformative technologies that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” CCEMC chair Eric Newell said in a statement.
Successful projects will have a focus on energy efficiency and conservation, carbon capture and storage or clean energy production and utilization, and may include laboratory or bench scale proof-of-concept demonstrations, prototype development and testing, small scale or field scale pilot demonstration and deployment projects.
Technology development and small demonstration projects can occur anywhere, according to the CCEMC, as long as the development is suitable for Alberta.
Large demonstration and deployment projects must take place in Alberta to be considered.
Funding would support as much as half of a project’s eligible expenses for a maximum project term of three years.
Submissions are due by August 28, with successful projects announced in 2015.
