Round 2 - Clean Energy for Rural and Remote Communities (CERRC) | ICE Network


Round 2 - Clean Energy for Rural and Remote Communities (CERRC)

  • Stage: Available
  • Category: Funding

The Clean Energy for Rural and Remote Communities (CERRC) program is a big opportunity for folks working on projects to reduce diesel reliance in off-grid communities. A number of people in our Network were successful in the first round. It would be great to see more in this round too!

Background and how to apply:

This program is seeking proposals to reduce the reliance of rural and remote communities on diesel fuel for heat and power. The program, which plans to support a suite of diverse projects across Canada, will be evaluated against a range of criteria. Proposals will need to demonstrate local community support and outline the community benefits of the project, particularly for Indigenous communities. The project must fit into one of the following streams:

Program streams:

  • BioHeat to reduce fossil fuel use through the installation, retrofit or investigation into the feasibility of biomass heating or combined heat and power systems for community and/or industrial applications.
  • Innovative demonstrations to reduce diesel use through the validation of novel renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy storage, and smart-grid technologies and applications.
  • Deployment of renewable energy technologies for electricity including hydro, wind, solar, geothermal, and bioenergy. Heat may also be produced, but the primary purpose of the project must be electricity production.

CERRC will be conducting a second round of reviews in March 2019.

The next intake deadline will be Tuesday December 4, 2018 at 23:59 ET, if you wish to receive a 30 minute feedback call, and final submission deadline will be Tuesday January 15, 2019 at 23:59 ET.

The CERRC Applicant Package has been updated as of October 2018. Please ensure you register below for a new applicant package and use that version for your submission.
