Nova Scotia won’t get to net-zero by 2050 with proven renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. The Net Zero Emerging Concepts and Technologies (ECT) Research Program will fund projects that seek to identify gaps in carbon-reduction pathways for hard-to-abate emissions and to support made-in-Nova Scotia solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions required to achieve net-zero by 2050.
The Net Zero ECT Research Program is coordinated by Net Zero Atlantic and is supported by $3 million in funding provided by the Nova Scotia Department of Environment and Climate Change. This funding advances actions 13 and 63 of Nova Scotia’s Climate Change Plan for Clean Growth, specifically research on natural carbon sinks – such as soil and forests, which absorb carbon dioxide – and research on new clean technologies and practices to help meet Nova Scotia’s net zero by 2050 target. Further details are available on the program website, which is updated regularly: Net Zero ECT Research Program
This webinar will describe Net Zero ECT Research Program application process, eligibility and Priority Research Themes in detail. The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, June 1, at 1 p.m. ADT.
