Canada call for proposals: Clean Energy for Rural and Remote Communities: BioHeat, Demonstration & Deployment Program Streams
The project must fit into one of the following streams:
Program streams: BioHeat to reduce fossil fuel use through the installation, retrofit or investigation into the feasibility of biomass heating or combined heat and power systems for community and/or industrial applications.
Innovative demonstrations to reduce diesel use through the validation of novel renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy storage, and smart-grid technologies and applications.
Deployment of renewable energy technologies for electricity including hydro, wind, solar, geothermal, and bioenergy. Heat may also be produced, but the primary purpose of the project must be electricity production. There is a separate call for preliminary proposals for Capacity-Building Activities to support development and delivery of knowledge and skills in an effort to reduce diesel dependency that go beyond a specific project..
The deadline for submission is May 17, 2018, (23:59 EDT)

These types of innovations help make switching to biomass heat a sound choice. (credits: Oregon Department of Forestry / Flickr Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 Generic (CC BY 2.0))
