Emissions Reduction Alberta (ERA) is launching a new $50 million Reshaping Energy Systems funding competition made possible through the Government of Alberta’s Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction (TIER) fund.
This investment will advance technologies focused on the transport, distribution, storage, and optimization of energy use to reduce emissions, create economic opportunities, and enable a more resilient, efficient, and reliable energy system.
The $50 million Reshaping Energy Systems call for proposals is exploring energy transport and distribution technology, energy storage, digital solutions for energy management, demonstrating grid-interactive building efficiency technologies, low-emission vehicle infrastructure and fleets. Reshaping Energy Systems is not limited to any particular energy carrier (electricity, natural gas, hydrogen, etc.); integration between systems is encouraged.
“This investment will help support new ways to transport, manage and use Alberta’s energy. Technologies enabled by this funding will help future proof Alberta’s energy systems, allowing us to support new ways to improve environmental sustainability, industry competitiveness, and reduce costs,” said Justin Riemer, CEO, Emissions Reduction Alberta.
Emissions Reduction Alberta has been named a finalist in the Funder of the Year Award and Ecosystem Supported of the Year Award categories at the 2023 Alberta Cleantech Awards.
The funder award goes to a funder, investor, government program, or VC championing a net zero economy by investing in cleantech ventures.The ecosystem award goes to an organization championing the growth and development of cleantech in Alberta through the support of climate-focused entrepreneurs, programs, ecosystem development, thought leadership, and community building.
