In advancing innovative ideas that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, we support the efforts of Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan by taking immediate action and investing in innovation and technology.
The Alberta Climate Leadership Plan commits to:
- Creating an environmentally responsible, sustainable and visionary Alberta energy industry;
- Creating green jobs and green infrastructure;
- Protecting human health; and
- Diversifying the economy and improving market access.
We are accelerating innovative solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Alberta.
Through the leadership of our provincial government, the mobilization of our innovation system, and the engagement and participation of industry and technology developers, ERA can help Alberta meet its climate leadership goals and support national and global greenhouse emission reduction objectives.
We fund technologies that support existing industries and historical areas of strength, and support technologies in new industries that not only reduce GHG emissions but also create future opportunities. We focus on technologies at later stages of development that require public funding to address barriers to deployment and commercialization.
In the process, we will create jobs, help increase Alberta’s Gross Domestic Product, diversify our economy and become a stronger, more resilient province.
