Canada Opens New Round of Funding for Canadian Cleantech Companies


Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) announced new funding for Canadian cleantech development and demonstration projects. STDC’s two key funds—SD Tech Fund and SD Natural Gas Fund—are now open and applications will be accepted through April 13, 2016.

The SD Natural Gas Fund acts in collaboration with the Canadian Gas Association and supports the development and demonstration of new downstream natural gas technology. For 2016, the Fund is focused on technology that works to meet, among others, transportation and renewable natural gas goals and objectives.

SDTC’s mandate is not only to fund promising Canadian technology projects but to also coach the companies that lead them as they move their technologies towards market.

“SDTC helps bridge the gap between research and market entry for Canadian cleantech projects,” said Leah Lawrence, CEO of SDTC. “We encourage cleantech innovators and pioneers to find out how SDTC can help support them in their next stages of project development and demonstration.”

SDTC’s portfolio is comprised of 285 clean technology projects representing an investment of over $740 million and a market capitalization of over $2 billion. To apply, applicants must contact a Funding Advisor at 613.234.6313 to initiate the funding process prior to completing a Statement of Interest.
