Breakthrough Energy Solutions Canada


Breakthrough Energy Solutions Canada (BESC) is a public-private partnership between the government of Canada and Breakthrough Energy.

Announced in May 2019 with an initial investment of up to $30 million, BESC will accelerate the development of clean energy technologies in the electricity, transportation, building, and manufacturing sectors.

The goal of the partnership is to inspire and support Canadian innovators working to commercialize zero-GHG technologies. The Canadian government, under Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan) Energy Innovation Program, and Breakthrough Energy will provide support and guidance, and potentially, financial investments, to help Canadian entrepreneurs bring zero-GHG technologies to market.
