Cleantech’s going mainstream: exploring new opportunities 

While investment in the cleantech sector has had its share of ups and downs in the past years, Canada has led the way in cleantech innovation as measured by the amount of private investment in Canadian cleantech companies and the number of patent applications and patents issued.

Canada's ability to compete globally in the cleantech sector will not exclusively come from investments in domestic manufacturing capabilities.


It will thrive if we can demonstrate our ability to quickly and effectively commercialize home-grown innovative technologies that are supported by adequate federal and provincial policies as well as private capital.


In Cleantech’s going mainstream: exploring new opportunities, we focus on the impact cleantech innovation is having on Canada’s power sector in terms of reducing the cost of solar and wind, lowering power demand through energy efficiency, and bringing energy storage to the grid. We also explore the state of cleantech innovation, investment and government support in Canada.
