Clean Resource Innovation Network Technology Competition

How Canada produces energy matters. New investments in innovation creates jobs, attracts international investments, and opens access to new markets. At the same time, new technologies optimize the production of energy while reducing industry’s impact on land, air, and water. The Clean Resource Innovation Network (CRIN) is advancing near-commercial technology solutions that will reduce Canada’s oil and gas industry’s environmental impact while addressing economic challenges.

The Clean Resource Innovation Network (CRIN) is a pan-Canadian network focused on ensuring Canada's energy resources can be sustainably developed and integrated into the global energy supply. CRIN is seeking innovative technological solutions for Canada's oil and gas industry that improve environmental performance, support economic growth, and competitiveness of Canadian companies, and create high-value jobs. Proposals are invited for technology solutions related to oil and gas industry operations, including both new developments and retrofit opportunities for existing operations.
