Three different funding options are available to eligible industrial operators: Emissions Performance, Innovation Accelerator and Project Feasibility Studies. Please click on the tabs below to learn more. 

If you are a reporting operation with a potential emission reduction project or study you would like to discuss, please fill out this project concept form (DOCX, 46KB) and submit it to the program advisor when requesting a meeting. 

For guidance and tips on filling out a CleanBC Industry Fund application form watch the Developing an Industry Fund Application webinar.

If you are a business with a potential technology solution for eligible reporting operations, please reach out to our Program Advisor to learn more about getting involved in the fund.

Our program advisor is available to answer any questions you may have regarding these funds. Please email:

Emissions Performance Request for Proposals 


The Emissions Performance funding call supports projects that reduce emissions at an industrial operation using commercially available technologies.



Projects must reduce GHG emissions in British Columbia that are attributable to or associated with reporting operations, through the use of commercially available technologies that reduce emissions intensity.

For more information on the scope and eligibility requirements for Emissions Performance applications, please refer to section 3 of the RFP.

  • Appendix B1 – GHG Reduction Calculation Template 
  • Appendix B2 – Project Budget Template 
  • Appendix B3 – Estimated Project Payback Calculation Template 
  • Appendix B4 – Process Block Flow Diagram 
  • Appendix B5 – Emission Factors 

​This document was updated on April 5, 2022 to reflect updated BC Hydro emissions factors in Appendix B5. 

Innovation Accelerator Request for Proposals

Open: March 14, 2022

Closing:  May 27, 2022


The Innovation Accelerator funding call supports projects that involve the demonstration, pilot or trial of clean technologies or processes with the potential to reduce emissions for industry in B.C.

This stream targets pre-commercial technologies in the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 7-8 range, as defined by Innovation Canada. However, novel trial projects for TRL 9 technologies, which meet the eligibility requirements, will also be accepted. 

Projects must have the potential to reduce emissions in B.C. as a direct result of (a) the use of the project’s technology or process at the reporting operations associated with the project and/or (b) the commercial adoption of the project’s technology or process.

Projects must contribute to innovation through the development of new technologies or processes or through the innovative adaptation of an existing technology or process. 

Project technologies or processes must have a path to commercial adoption if successfully proven viable. 

For Innovation Accelerator call scope and eligibility please refer to section 3 of the Innovation Accelerator RFP.

Project Feasibility Studies Request for Proposals

Open: April 1, 2022

Closing: June 3, 2022

The Feasibility Studies funding call supports preliminary studies that aim to provide clarity and confidence to potential projects intending to apply for funding through the EP or IA RFP streams.

The study should help to remove barriers, mitigate risks, and/or determine the viability of a potential project, including whether a project is operationally, technically or economically feasible.

Studies must support work related to a potential project that would be eligible under either the Emissions Performance or Innovation Accelerator streams.

For more information on the scope and eligibility requirements for the Feasibility Study call, please refer to section 3 of the RFP.
