The Clean Resource Innovation Network (CRIN) is a pan-Canadian network founded to enable clean energy development by commercializing and adopting technologies for the oil and gas industry.
We bring together diverse expertise from industry, entrepreneurs, investors, academia, governments, and many others to enable solutions that improve the industry’s environmental and economic performance. We believe that these solutions will be applied across Canadian industries and around the globe, and that energy development and environmental stewardship together will have local, national and international benefits.
Our technology-themed investments and working groups drive innovation in Canada’s oil and gas industry, mapped against industry priorities to address environmental and cost competitiveness challenges. Learn more about the work being done in the areas of:
Innovation Central provides a platform where innovators can showcase their emerging technologies. By providing this much needed visibility, new partnerships and collaborations, funding and investment, and vital knowledge-sharing can take place.
Producers, investors/funders, solution developers, governments, researchers, accelerators and many others, can use this tool to find the people and resources they need to bring innovations to commercialization and wide-spread adoption.
Our three Oil and Gas Technology Competitions provided up to $80 million in matching funds for late-stage breakthrough clean technology projects.
