Ontario has launched a pilot program to support local innovators that are ready to meet the demand for clean energy technologies in new international markets.
The International Energy Demonstration Fund will provide financial support to Ontario companies that have developed innovative clean energy technologies for new markets. Developed in collaboration with industry partners and the federal government, the fund will give clean technology innovators the opportunity to increase their capacity to bring their advanced energy solutions to new markets, while helping solve global energy challenges, such as emissions from energy generation and access to clean, reliable energy.
Applications are now open online, and will close on July 19, 2018. Eligible clean energy technology projects could include microgrid, solar, storage, smart meter data and nuclear projects.
Supporting local clean energy innovators is part of the government's plan to support care, create opportunity and make life more affordable during this period of rapid economic change. The plan includes free prescription drugs for everyone under 25, and 65 or over, through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, and free preschool child care from 2 ½ to kindergarten.
