Next Generation Clean Energy Infrastructure

Call for Letters of Expression of Interest (EOI)

The Call for Letters of Expression of Interest (EOI) under the Next Generation Component of GI Phase II is now closed following the submission deadline of 23:59 EDT, September 25, 2017.

EOI review is expected to be completed by an Expert Panel by late Fall. Successful applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal once this review process has been completed.


Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) is proposing to allocate $79M in fundingFootnote1 to support investments in green infrastructure, including initiatives that will support the implementation of the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change.

Funding Streams

EV charging infrastructure deployment projects (projects that do not have an innovative component) may be considered in future funding programs

  • Energy Efficient Buildings Research, Development & Demonstration - Up to $49.3M over eight years from April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2026 to develop and implement new building codes to retrofit existing buildings and build new net-zero energy consumption buildings across Canada. These funds will support research, development and demonstration projects to accelerate the development and adoption of technologies, building design and construction practices, provide more cost effective building solutions, validate their applications locally with real-world demonstrations, and build confidence with industry and PTs to accelerate their adoption of revised building codes.
  • Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Demonstrations (Phase II) - Up to $30M over four years from April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2022 to continue to support demonstrations of next-generation and innovative electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure projects that address technical and non-technical barriers to the installation, operation and management of EV charging technologies.
