How to apply for funding

Greenhouse Renewable Energy Technologies (GRET) R&D Initiative

The Agricultural Adaptation Council (AAC) issued the $1 million Greenhouse Renewable Energy Technologies (GRET) R&D Initiative Call for Proposals on June 1, 2017 to support innovative research and development projects that focus on renewable energy technologies for the Ontario greenhouse sector. The projects results should benefit commercial greenhouse businesses that grow or propagate vegetables, fruit, culinary herbs, or floriculture.

The objective of this initiative is to test renewable energy technologies with a potential for future integration into greenhouse production in Ontario and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the sector. The initiative will also identify and evaluate technologies for feasibility within a greenhouse production system, promoting innovation to develop more clean-technology processes and products.

Applications are due on Thursday, July 13, 2017 at 4:30 p.m. The Call for Proposals and Application information can be found on the GRET R&D Initiative page.
