Energy Innovation Program – – Carbon capture, utilization and storage RD&D Call | Natural Resources Canada (NRCan)

Value

The CCUS RD&D Capture focus area is open to R&D projects that request between $500,000 and $2,500,000 (comprising up to 75% of total project costs) and demonstration projects that request between $1,000,000 and $5,000,000 (comprising up to 50% of total project costs), both over a period of up to five years.

Description

Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) provides an important pathway to emissions reductions for energy and industrial activities under conditions where neither electrification nor low carbon fuels are able to provide technically or economically feasible low-carbon solutions.

As part of Budget 2021, the government is investing $319 million over seven years into research, development, and demonstrations to advance the commercial viability of CCUS technologies. These funds will support businesses, academia, non-profits, government, and federal laboratories on the path to net-zero emissions by 2050.

Eligible Applicants

The CCUS RD&D Capture focus area is open to:

  1. Legal entities validly incorporated or registered in Canada, including:
    1. For-profit and not-for-profit organizations such as electricity and gas utilities, electricity system operators, transmissions owners and operators, companies, industry associations, research associations, and standards organizations
    2. Indigenous organizations and groups
    3. Community groups
    4. Canadian academic institutions
  2. Provincial, territorial, regional, and municipal governments and their departments and agencies where applicable
