$35 million ERA Industrial Efficiency Challenge Funding Opportunity

Emissions Reduction Alberta (ERA) is making $35 million in funding available to help accelerate the deployment and adoption of leading technologies that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve cost competitiveness across Alberta’s industrial sectors. This funding will support Alberta’s large emitters subject to the Carbon Competitiveness Incentive Regulation (CCIR).

We are offering up to $10 million per project, and as much as 50% of a project’s eligible expenses. The deadline for submissions is May 31, 2018 at 5 p.m. MDT (UTC-6h).

Technologies can come to Alberta from anywhere.

SUCCESSFUL PROJECTS MUST:

  • Involve field piloting, commercial demonstration, or large-scale deployment of leading industrial efficiency technologies at a “Large Final Emitter” site in Alberta (TRL 7-9).
  • Reduce the quantity of energy or GHG emissions to produce the same or greater output.
  • Be complete within three years after commencement.
  • Demonstrate how the solution is “leading” – such as first of kind, first in Alberta, first in industry or first at facility.

LARGE FINAL EMITTERS

Facilities that are considered Large Final Emitters in Alberta are found in a number of sectors, including (but are not limited to):

  • Cement/lime
  • Chemical
  • Energy (Oil and gas)
  • Fertilizer
  • Food manufacturing
  • Forestry/paper
  • Mining
  • Municipalities
  • Pipelines
  • Power generation
  • Waste treatment

FOCUS AREAS

The focus of this funding opportunity is on advancing leading industrial efficiency technologies in Alberta. Our intent is to accelerate technology with near-term market potential (<5 years). This call is open to all industrial sectors, but opportunities within the emissions intensive trade exposed sectors are of particular interest. Examples of potential areas of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Process improvements (combustion, catalysts, water treatment, etc.)
  • High efficiency equipment (motors, pumps, compressors, etc.)
  • Waste heat utilization and low carbon industrial heat
  • Fuel switching, electrification, and alternative feedstocks
  • Digital optimization and automation
  • Industrial carbon conversion/utilization
  • Industrial transportation and logistical optimization
