Energy Innovation Challenge

The Energy Innovation Challenge is a groundbreaking three-year program designed to develop capacity that supports Alberta energy transition and diversifies the energy economy.

We partnered with Decentralised Energy Canada (DEC) to empower small and medium-sized Canadian businesses to overcome commercialization obstacles and bring their innovations to market. The innovations will address focus areas related to:

  • grid reliability
  • grid resiliency
  • energy affordability
  • sustainability

Up to six successful applicants will be invited to demonstrate their innovative solutions with small-scale pilot projects within the City of Medicine Hat franchise territory. The City of Medicine Hat will provide 50% of the capital requirements for each project, up to $850,000 in total for all six projects, funded through reserves. 

Applications are due June 21, 2024
