The National Energy Systems Modelling Call, delivered under Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan) Energy Innovation Program (EIP), targets projects which quantitatively model the role of innovative technologies in achieving emissions reductions in the energy sector and its role within a net-zero emissions economy.
The National Energy Systems Modelling Call is open to projects which conduct quantitative modelling (e.g., simulation, optimization) of Canada’s energy system at a national level, showing potential trajectories to net zero and how these could be affected by technological innovation. Projects may focus on specific aspects of the energy system (e.g., buildings, electricity, industrial subsector) but must produce national, economy-wide GHG and energy results to demonstrate consistency with net zero. Further details can be found in the Applicant Guide.
The National Energy Systems Modelling Call is open to projects that request a minimum of $100,000 over a period of up to 3 years, up to a maximum contribution of $1 million. Further details can be found in the Applicant Guide.
How to apply
The call’s project selection process has two phases:
- expression of interest (EOI) phase, open to all eligible applicants
- full project proposal (FPP) phase, open to invited applicants only
To apply, applicants must complete and submit their EOI via the Applicant Portal by 3:00 p.m. PT on January 26, 2024.
Applicants are responsible for ensuring that they meet the eligibility criteria and that their EOI is fully completed and successfully submitted by the deadline.
