ValueGrant: Up to $500,000 to cover up to 50% of eligible costs.
We fund pilot projects that use recovered or renewable thermal energy in new or existing facilities. This funding helps Canadian cities and communities of all sizes use less energy, which reduces their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improves their air quality.
Pilot projects assess solutions in real-life conditions. They evaluate either a small-scale version of a project or a full-scale, replicable version.
All Canadian municipal governments; Municipal partners applying in partnership with a municipal government.
Your pilot may compare several options or assess one option’s ability to reduce GHG emissions by at least 40% by using recovered or renewable thermal energy in new or existing facilities. Your pilot should assess whether the project meets the necessary requirements (e.g., financial, technical), has a solid business case and the ability to deliver strong environmental, financial and social benefits directly to your community or through replication in other municipalities. Your project’s outcomes should help you decide whether to scale up the use of the solution you are piloting.
Examples of what you might pilot:
Thermal energy use, including:
- Energy generation from waste or landfill gas (does not include incineration)
- Construction, retrofitting or expansion of district energy systems that use recovered or renewable thermal energy supply
- Using a low carbon energy source (e.g., residual biomass) to displace fossil fuels in existing district energy systems
- Combined heat and power, cogeneration or trigeneration systems
Deadline DateApplications are accepted year round, though this offer will close when all funding has been allocated.
