    Supported by

    The Government of Alberta committed up to $30 million for the Energy Savings for Business suite of funding through the Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction fund. Up to $25 million in additional funds was made available from the Government of Canada’s Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund.

    About Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund

    The Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund provides $1.4 billion to provinces and territories to reduce carbon pollution and help Canada meet its 2030 climate target. The funding recognizes the key role provinces and territories play in addressing climate change, and it supports their efforts to reduce emissions, encourage innovation, save money, and create jobs and healthier communities.

    About the Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction (TIER) Fund

    The TIER system is funded by large industry that pay into the fund when they do not meet emissions targets. Alberta is using up to $700 million from the TIER fund for a range of programs that are reducing emissions, boosting the economy and getting Albertans back to work. This investment supports Alberta’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and low oil prices.
