Seven Canadian natural gas producers have joined the Natural Gas Innovation Fund (NGIF), a fund created by the Canadian Gas Association to support cleantech innovation in natural gas that addresses current and emerging challenges to Canada’s energy system.
The now 13-member fund has also opened a $3-million call for funding applications to advance cleantech solutions directed at natural gas producers. The NGIF will make up to $1 million available per project, representing as much as 25 per cent of a project’s eligible expenses.
The call is directed at small to medium enterprises and technology development start-ups. Eligible projects must advance cleantech innovation and drive environmental performance and greenhouse gas reduction in the development and production of natural gas in Canada. The deadline for submissions is February 13, 2019. To learn more, visit www.ngif.ca.
