Creating Jobs through Clean Energy Technology
27 Oct 2020
Alberta’s government is spending $50 million from the industry-funded Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction (TIER) system to create jobs, grow our clean-tech industry and cut emissions.
The funding, being delivered by Alberta Innovates, will be given to technologies that help reduce methane emissions and improve industrial energy efficiency. The $50 million in funding over three years is expected to support about 230 jobs. With additional dollars invested from industry, this support will total almost $200 million and create an estimated 910 jobs.
Alberta’s government recently announced up to $750 million for projects across the province through the TIER system and other public funding, supporting almost 9,000 jobs and injecting $1.9 billion into the province’s economy.
