CALL FOR PROPOSALS – Projects to Improve Energy Efficiency in Industrial Facilities

Posted December 9, 2021

Natural Resources Canada’s Industrial Energy Management program is now accepting applications for funding until January 28, 2022 at 23:59 ET for projects to be completed by March 31, 2023. To request the application package, send an email to nrcan.rfpindustry-ddpindustrie.rncan@canada.ca.

Financial assistance is available to help fund your industrial facility’s energy management project. Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) will provide financial assistance of up to 50% of eligible costs, to a maximum of $40,000 per facility. This financial assistance can be combined with other funding sources. When it is, NRCan may adjust its level of funding so that the combined level of financial assistance from all public sources does not exceed 75% of total eligible project costs.


There are three types of eligible projects:

ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems Standard projects
Energy Management Information Systems (EMIS) projects
Process Integration (PI) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) studies

Eligible facilities are those engaged in energy consuming processes that involve the physical or chemical transformation of materials or substances into new products. Products may be finished (ready to use or consume) or semi-finished (raw material). Related activities include assembling component parts, blending materials, and finishing products.
To receive our cost-shared assistance, the company/facility needs to be a CIPEC leader.
