Natural Resources Canada – Energy Innovation Program – Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage RD&D Call


Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) provides an important pathway to emissions reductions for energy and industrial activities under conditions where neither electrification nor low carbon fuels are able to provide technically or economically feasible low-carbon solutions. The program supports businesses, academia, non-profits, government, and federal laboratories on the path to net-zero emissions by 2050. The CCUS RD&D call will focus on earlier-stage RD&D activities across three different focus areas:

  1. Capture – Closed as of October 3, 2022;

  2. Storage/Sequestration (to characterize and develop safe, permanent sub-surface CO2 storage to support planning of cost efficient storage opportunities across Canada);

  3. Utilization (to expand the strategic uses of CO2, and support the development of cost and energy efficient utilization pathways).


Applicants must be:

  • legal entities validly incorporated or registered in Canada, including:
    a) for-profit and not-for-profit organizations such as electricity and gas utilities, electricity system operators, transmissions owners and operators, companies, industry associations, research associations, and standards organizations;
    b) indigenous organizations and groups;
    c) community groups;
    d) canadian academic institutions;
  • provincial, territorial, regional, and municipal governments and their departments and agencies where applicable.

Applications Steps:

Applicants must wait until the expressions of interest for the storage/sequestration (fall 2022) and utilization components (winter 2023) can be submitted.
