Energy Innovation Program in Canada

Energy Innovation Program in Canada

Deadline: 2-Feb-22

The Government of Canada is inviting applications for its Energy Innovation Program.

As part of the Government’s efforts to accelerate the development of technologies that can decarbonize industry, this call for proposals under the Energy Innovation Program will target industrial fuel switching and production of clean fuels for use in hard-to-abate sectors, focusing specifically on three technology areas.

Focus Areas

Focus area 1: industrial fuel switching
This focus area supports projects that have the potential to enable the substitution of lower carbon fuels or feedstock (including electricity, hydrogen, biomass, biofuels, and gaseous fuels) in the following industrial sectors: chemicals and fertilizers, iron and steel, smelting and refining, and cement.
Completed projects are expected to achieve the following broad objectives:
Understand properties of lower carbon fuels and their impact on existing industrial processes and systems.
Advance innovative technologies or processes that enable the future uptake of lower carbon fuels, including retrofit or redesign required to adapt to the substitute fuels.
Use lower carbon fuels or feedstock in existing industrial processes to reduce energy intensity and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Focus area 2: clean fuels production
This focus area supports projects for the pre-commercial development, advancement, and piloting of technologies that reduce the capital and operating costs of producing clean fuels.
Completed projects are expected to achieve the following broad objectives:
Develop new clean fuels production processes.
Improve the process and efficiency of clean fuels production using advanced feedstock.
Advance the usability of waste or underutilized feedstock.
Focus area 3: hydrogen codes and standards
This focus area supports projects that advance knowledge towards the development of codes and standards related to the production, transportation, storage, and utilization of hydrogen.
Completed projects are expected to achieve the following broad objectives:
Advance knowledge towards the update, harmonization, and/or development of codes and standards for the production, transportation, storage, and utilization of hydrogen.
Funding Information
This call may contribute up to 75% of total costs for R&D projects and up to 50% for demonstration projects. It is expected that good quality projects under focus areas 1 and 2 will request between $500,000 and $4,000,000.

Eligibility Criteria
Eligible applicants include:

Legal entities validly incorporated or registered in Canada, including:
for-profit and not-for-profit organizations such as electricity and gas utilities, electricity system operators, transmissions owners and operators, companies, industry associations, research associations, and standards organizations
Indigenous organizations and groups
community groups and
Canadian academic institutions
Provincial, territorial, regional and municipal governments and their departments and agencies where applicable.
It is expected that proponents (the entity that will sign a Contribution Agreement with NRCan) will be the majority owner of any assets purchased in full or in part by funding provided by NRCan.
