The Municipal Climate Change Action Centre (MCCAC) in partnership with Alberta Innovates (AI) is looking for Alberta municipalities to provide sustainable solutions that move municipalities towards low carbon community scale electricity generation via formation of a network/consortium partnership leading to installation of a community generation facility.
The Municipal Community Generation Challenge (MCGC) will see the development of a new renewable electricity generation project(s) which produces a significant community benefit in the form of reduced greenhouse gas emissions, diversification of the local economy and whose data and knowledge can then be transferred to other Municipalities within the Province.
MCCAC is investing up to $7 million and Alberta Innovates is investing up to $3 million for a total possible Challenge total of $10 million in funding for one or multiple projects.
The submission deadline for Expressions of Interest was August 9, 2019. Submissions are now under review and successful applicants invited to Stage III - Full Project Proposal will be notified in September.
* Note that the MCCAC and AI at their sole discretion reserve the rights to alter or cancel the currently-anticipated timelines.
