CCEMC and SDTC Offering $40 Million Joint Funding Competition to Clean Tech SMEs

Up to $40 million in funding available, with a maximum of $10 million available to individual GHG reducing technologies Jenny Keleher March 2, 2016

The Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation (CCEMC) and Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) are offering up to $40 million to Canadian innovators producing energy efficiency and conservation; carbon dioxide utilization, methane reduction, or cleaner energy production and usage projects. CCEMC and SDTC have had great success together funding these types of projects in the past and this is the first time the two organizations are offering an opportunity to access funding from both through a single application process.


Our joint process offers applicants a streamlined, harmonized model with one window for access to two pools of money. Collectively, there is $40 million available, with a maximum of $10 million per project. The matching funds available here (up to 66.7%) are more than applicants could get through either the SDTC or CCEMC processes individually.


Eligible Projects:

  • Advancing pre-commercial technology for GHG reduction with a current Technology Readiness Level from 4-7, and includes prototype development, field pilots, and commercial demonstration projects.
  • Led by applicants incorporated and operating in Canada with fewer than 500 employees and less than $50 million in annual gross revenue.
  • Have a maximum project length of four years.
  • Can demonstrate anywhere in Canada but technology must be applicable and well suited for deployment in Alberta.
  • Meet a consortium requirement of applicant and at least one contractual non-related partner in the project. A consortium partner must provide cash and/or in-kind contributions.


Deadline for Submission: Wednesday, April 13, 2016 at 8:00 PM EDT
