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.
