Alberta businesses can be improved and use clean technology as a growth strategy; however, a significant barrier to clean technology adoption is in-depth market knowledge and a plan specific to each business with decision-making support. The Clean Technology Business Innovation (CTBI) Voucher program focuses on the following priority sectors: methane emissions reduction, low carbon electricity, waste to value added products, green buildings, energy efficiency.
The CTBI Voucher has two phases: Stream 1 and Stream 2. The purpose of a Stream 1 CTBI voucher is to assist Alberta SMEs with that all-important first step of identifying specifically how their business can effectively and profitably make use of clean energy options and how to measure the results. A Stream 2 voucher is available as seed funding to implement the low carbon plan developed through the Stream 1 voucher.
