Green Infrastructure Phase II

Objectives

A clean environment and a strong economy go hand-in-hand. To advance Canada’s efforts to build a clean economy, the Federal Government proposed investments in green infrastructure, including initiatives that will support the implementation of the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change. 

Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) is proposing to advance Canada’s efforts to build a clean economy by accelerating the market entry of next generation clean energy infrastructure by investing a portion of its funding into commercial-scale technology demonstrations, deployment, community capacity building and targeted R&D.Footnote 1

Programs

Next Generation Clean Energy Infrastructure

Funding under this program will target two key areas:

  1. Driving down the cost and creating market confidence in net zero construction to enable adoption of more stringent codes; and
  2. Accelerating market entry of next-generation as well as innovative electric vehicle charging technologies to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles.

Promoting Clean Energy for Remote Communities

Program Components will target three key areas:

  1. Innovative Demonstrations to Reduce Diesel Use in off-grid, remote and Northern communities (indigenous and non-indigenous);
  2. Deployment of Renewable Energy Technologies to reduce reliance on diesel in off-grid, remote and Northern communities (Indigenous and non-Indigenous); and
  3. Bioheating Program to Reduce Fossil Fuel Use to reduce reliance on fossil fuels in rural and remote communities.
