AI-EES And SDTC Jointly Fund $8 Million Expression Of InterestCall To Advance Water Technologies

Alberta Innovates - Energy and Environment Solutions (AI-EES) and Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) are offering applicants access to two pools of money through one application to promote new water treatment technologies. Collectively, there is $8 million available, with a maximum of $1 million per project. 

Eligible projects:

  • Pre-commercial water related technologies that address: municipal water treatment; advanced steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) water treatment; oilsands mine water treatment; flow-back and produced water from hydraulic fracturing; agriculture and irrigation; water distribution rehabilitation and repair.
  • Must be at the Technology Readiness Level range of 4 to 7, which includes prototype development, field pilots, and commercial scale demonstration projects.
  • Are led by applicants both incorporated and operating in Canada with less than 500 employees and less than $50 million in annual gross revenue.
  • A consortium is required, which means the applicant must have at least one contractual non-related partner involved with the project.
  • Have a maximum project length of two years.
  • Project can demonstrate anywhere in Canada, yet technology must be applicable and well-suited for deployment in Alberta.

It is not uncommon for AI-EES and SDTC to fund the same or similar projects, but applicants must apply separately to two very different funding application processes. AI-EES and SDTC came together in 2015 with the intent to make it easier for applicants to access project funding from both organizations.

Through this Expression of Interest, AI-EES and SDTC are offering applicants a streamlined, harmonized process with one window approach to funding of projects that are of strategic value to Alberta and Canada. The matching funds available here (up to 67 per cent) are more than an applicant could typically access by going through the SDTC or AI-EES process.

For more information, visit: Application FAQ's or the AI-EES or SDTC websites. The EOI deadline is Friday, April 15, 2016 at 3 p.m. Mountain Standard Time. Applicants invited to submit a full project proposal will be notified by Wednesday, May 25, and final funding decisions will occur in early November 2016.
