Canada has launched a new ecoENERGY Innovation Initiative. The $97-million
program will invest in research, development, and demonstration projects for
clean energy technologies that will create high-quality jobs for Canadians.
The ecoENERGY Innovation Initiative will
advance energy technologies that produce and use energy in a cleaner and more
efficient way. Selected projects will focus on research, development, and
demonstration in five key areas: energy efficiency in buildings, communities,
industry, and transportation; clean electricity and renewables; bioenergy;
research and development of electric vehicles; and unconventional oil and gas.
An initial call for letters of interest in
the program was announced on August 2, 2011. More information can be found at www.ecoenergyinnovation.nrcan.gc.ca.
