"Investments in clean energy technologies are a key part of our balanced approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and climate change," said Minister MacKay. "Canada’s Economic Action Plan is investing in four clean energy projects in Atlantic Canada, which will help demonstrate our expertise in clean energy technology innovation while creating high-quality jobs for Canadians."
The Clean Energy Fund is investing nearly $1 billion in technology development and demonstration. Total investments under the Clean Energy Fund for large and small demonstration projects are benefiting Canada’s economy by leveraging nearly $3.5 billion in further investments by industry and other levels of government.
Part of the Government of Canada’s Economic Action Plan, the Clean Energy Fund is generating new economic activity in the short term while strengthening the foundation for sustainable prosperity in the future. The Economic Action Plan includes new measures totalling almost $2.4 billion to support a cleaner and more sustainable environment and help meet Canada’s climate change objectives.
The Government of Canada has unveiled four successful clean energy projects at the Trenton Power Plant in Trenton, Nova Scotia. Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence and Minister for the Atlantic Gateway, said the projects will receive support from the Clean Energy Fund. Investments in clean energy technologies are a key part of Canada’s balanced approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.
