Clean Tech on Prince Edward Island

Tackling climate change now and in the future will require our best ideas, ingenuity and enterprise. We need viable, long-term solutions as we work to achieve our target of being the first province in Canada to reach net zero.

What is clean tech?

Clean technology is any process, product, or service that reduces negative environmental impacts through significant energy efficiency improvements, the sustainable use of resources, or environmental protection activities.

Accelerating clean tech growth on Prince Edward Island will:

  • Diversify our economic sectors through an emerging economic sector cluster;
  • Help companies across diverse sectors adopt clean technology, optimize waste, and use clean energy, supporting long-term competitiveness and sustainable economic growth;
  • Accelerate PEI’s path to net zero GHG emissions to help achieve our 2040 target.

Clean Tech Park

The Clean Tech Park is PEI’s future home for clean tech innovation, business, energy and education.

This park will seek to grow PEI’s expertise and demonstrate ecological and economical practices as a baseline for sustainable futures.

100-acre business park to be developed in phases

Phase one: 15 acres. 

  • Site preparation work to be completed by June 2022.

Clean Tech Learning and Innovation Centre

The Centre is a destination for students, industry and government to collaborate, learn and innovate.

The 44,000 sq. ft. building will house the Clean Tech Academy, graduate pods and incubation space as well as collaborative space.

Clean Tech Academy

The Academy will offer a Certificate and a Master’s Degree in Cleantech Leadership through a joint initiative of Holland College and the University of Prince Edward Island.

The PEI Energy Academy will extend applied training, research, and early-stage development in energy innovation.

The Clean Tech Park will be connected to local and regional industry, education, and culture. Together, the Academy and the Learning and Innovation Centre will foster a community dedicated to innovation and collaboration by accommodating a range of education and enterprises in eco-centered research, development, and manufacturing.
