Are you looking for opportunities to scale up your leading-edge digital energy company? The United Kingdom (UK) has ambitious goals to cut emissions and increase renewable energy, including the decarbonisation of its electricity system by 2035. This will provide opportunities for Canadian tech companies offering digital solutions in clean energy management and distribution. Through the Canadian Technology Accelerator (CTA), a global business-development program, you can gain the knowledge and connections you need to enter this growing market.

Eligibility

We are looking for Canadian innovators who have:

  • revenue-generating businesses with existing market traction in North America or elsewhere
  • innovative, fully built and validated technology
  • a passionate, strong and committed management team with at least one senior manager who can commit to participating in the full CTA program
  • a UK market-entry strategy with an appropriate company culture for the local market
  • sufficient resources to target and achieve growth in the market

We use a broad definition of “digital energy solutions” and are interested in working with a wide range of technology companies providing solutions in:

  • renewable energy grid integration
  • demand side management including electric vehicle charging infrastructure and energy storage management
  • grid operation and surveillance
  • transmission and distribution level of power grids
  • optimization of energy consumption/digital efficiency tools

The Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) supports diversity, equity and inclusion in trade. We strongly encourage companies led by Canadians of all backgrounds and orientations to apply.

Application Procedure

This three-to-four-month program will run virtually for 3 to 4 hours a week, from the beginning of March to the end of May 2022. If travel restrictions ease, there is the possibility of an optional, 1 to 2 week in-person market visit to supplement the virtual program. Selected companies will participate in both one-on-one and group sessions, including:

  • market insight webinars and workshops
  • mentorship sessions, both one-on-one and with other participants
  • targeted business-to-business (B2B) meetings with decision makers and experts in the private sector and government
  • tailored business development support sessions, as well as workshops on refining your market-entry strategy
  • at least one networking session with other companies, investors, executives and decision-makers
