Energy Efficiency

Clean And efficient energy Solutions

We all need energy — there’s no doubt about that. However, the inefficiencies in the ways we produce, store, and use energy, especially when it comes from non-renewable sources, means that cleantech innovations have plenty of opportunities in this space.

Energy is an essential part of everyday life, but our use of it is often wasteful and inefficient, leading to higher overall costs and emissions. Canada is fortunate to have vast natural resources to produce energy, but CO2 emissions in the country have also gone up by nearly 40% since 1990.

International markets with bigger populations and inadequate energy supplies could also benefit from cleantech solutions, which is why this sector often deals with renewable energy production and storage or improving efficiencies in existing infrastructures and facilities. Efforts in monitoring, optimal performance, excess storage, and cleaner production of energy have the potential to change consumption patterns and reduce our dependence on non-renewable energy sources.

Highly sought after clean technologies in this sector provide better ways to:

  • construct for and monitor energy-efficiency in homes and other buildings,
  • produce alternative fuels and energy sources for transportation,
  • improve energy security and access,
  • conduct industrial operations as optimally as possible,
  • produce and store renewable energy.
