Our goal is to accelerate a pathway to 90% renewable and clean power in Canada by 2030

Currently only 17% of Canada’s total primary energy supply is from renewable sources. Yet access to affordable and reliable energy is essential to eradicate poverty and enable economic growth. At the same time, energy production and use is currently the dominant contributor to climate change, accounting for around 78% of total global GHG emissions.

Clean and Affordable Energy is Essential to Decarbonize 

Our venture programming connects power technology companies with training and support to accelerate your path to adoption. Join us on our mission to accelerate a pathway to 90% renewable and clean power in Canada by 2030.
