Industry
Grants Program

An industry grant for a startup to de-risk clean technology development is awarded through a peer review technical panel.

Overview

Industry Grants is a program that offers a non-dilutive grant to startups that delivers solutions to the environment and other challenges facing the natural gas sector.

Industry Grants program is unique as it brings Canada's energy industry leadership to every project a grant supports, helping startups derisk their clean technologies.
Industry Grants program has strong connections to every part of the gas value chain, offering startups a means to test and develop clean technologies through field trials and pilots.
Industry Grants program has been designed to work closely with our federal and provincial trusted partners.
