Climate Change Innovation and Technology Framework Programs

On April 25, 2018, Alberta Innovates hosted an information webinar for the Climate Change Innovation And Technology Framework (CCITF) programs.

Background

The Climate Change Innovation And Technology Framework (CCITF) was developed to achieve the goals of Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan through innovation and technology.

The purpose of CCITF funding is to:

  • Ensure coordinated, impactful investments in research, innovation and technology;
  • Accelerate the development of innovative and transformative technologies; and
  • Engage and align stakeholders through partnerships with other governments, industry, not-for-profits and academia.

CCITF supports a variety of programs in these priority sector areas: cleaner oil and gas; methane emissions reduction; low carbon electricity; waste to value-added; green buildings and energy efficiency.

The CCITF is a strategic initiative of the Government of Alberta as part of its Climate Leadership Plan.

Economic Development and Trade (EDT), Emissions Reductions Alberta (ERA) and Alberta Innovates (AI), are working together as delivery agents to administer a suite of programs under the framework.

Emissions Reductions Alberta (ERA) will administer the Scale-up and Large-scale Demonstration program. See below for a program description and how to apply.

EDT will invest in three programs, Alberta Investor Tax Credit, Capital Investment Tax Credit and Emerging Clean Technology Partnerships. For more information please follow the links above to find out eligibility and how to apply.
