Current initiatives are delivering high-quality research, development and demonstration (RD&D) projects for Canadians.


Energy Innovation Program

$24 million per year

OERD’s flagship on-going program is funding energy RD&D projects that aim to reduce GHG emissions by 4.25 Mt/year by 2030 while increasing competitiveness, affordability and reliability in Canada’s energy sector.


Clean Growth Program

$155 million over 4 years ended March 31, 2022

Projects addressed pressing environmental challenges and economic opportunities in Canada’s energy, mines and forestry sectors, for an expected GHG reduction of 0.3 to 0.7 Mt/year by 2026.


Impact Canada

$75 million over 4 years

Under six Clean Tech Challenges, innovators are unlocking breakthrough solutions to complex and persistent problems in developing clean technology.


Green Infrastructure: Energy Efficient Buildings

$48.3 million over 8 years

Projects are demonstrating innovative building technologies through deep-energy retrofits and the construction of new buildings.


Green Infrastructure: Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Demonstrations

$76.1 million over 6 years

Demonstration projects are addressing technological gaps and barriers to the introduction of electric vehicles, such as cost, safety, charging speed and function in very cold climates.


Green Infrastructure: Smart Grids

$36.3 over 4 years

Funding utility-led projects are reducing GHG emissions, better utilizing existing electricity assets and fostering innovation and clean jobs by demonstrating smart grid technologies and integrated systems.


Green Infrastructure:  Clean Energy for Rural and Remote Communities

$56.5 million over 6 years

Demonstration projects are reducing reliance on diesel fuel in Canada’s rural and remote communities, primarily indigenous communities, by supporting a transition to more sustainable energy solutions.


Federal Internal Energy R&D

Up to $50 million per year

Together, the Program of Energy Research and Development and the internal component of the Energy Innovation Program fund energy-related RD&D activities undertaken in federal departments and agencies.
