|Projects:||CCEMC Funding:||GHG Reductions - Tonnes of CO2e by 2020:|
The Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation (CCEMC) has a mandate to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change. Over the last 5 years, the CCEMC has funded over 100 projects that are contributing to Alberta's GHG reduction targets. Not all funded projects may be shown at this time, to view a list of projects to date see below or, click here.

Also known as carbon capture and sequestration, this area of funding focuses on projects that capture and store carbon dioxide and assess its potential uses and value. Carbon capture methods involve capturing the carbon emissions from industrial emitters. The carbon dioxide is then transported to an approved site where it is stored deep underground. Alberta's carbon capture and storage projects contribute significantly to the province's greenhouse gas reduction targets. Technologies funded through this platform focus on alternative ways to produce energy to help Alberta grow this sector, such as wind, solar and bioenergy. These clean energy solutions are leading the way in reducing carbon dioxide emissions by providing a substitution for burning fossil fuels as a means to produce energy. This area focuses on supporting efforts to reduce emissions from fossil fuels while sustaining Alberta’s role as a global energy leader. Clean energy technologies find new ways to reduce carbon emissions during the energy production process. This area supports projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions by transforming how we use energy, applying energy-efficient solutions and conserving energy. Our energy efficiency funding helps organizations reduce carbon dioxide emissions by finding ways to make their operations use less energy, or burn less fossil fuels. This platform focuses on helping Alberta reduce climate change impact now while increasing our resilience to future effects. Our climate change adaptation projects will enhance our understanding of the impacts and potential management responses on wildlife, ecosystems, forestry and watersheds. Projects in this category were funded through the CCEMC Grand Challenge: Innovative Carbon Uses. These projects focus on technologies or processes that produce high value goods from greenhouse gases, biological processes that capture/consume carbon and convert it into a new viable product, high-value materials with high carbon content that could be produced from greenhouse gases or technologies that fix captured carbon into solid or readily transportable starting materials. These projects reduce emissions from biological sources, such as crop and livestock production, the forest industry and municipal waste handling. Some biological projects are funded through the CCEMC Biological GHG Management Program that is administered on our behalf by Alberta Innovates Bio Solutions. Other projects were identified through the CCEMC's competitive Request for Proposals process.
