PRIORITY CLEANTECH SUB-SECTORS 

 Working with regional partners, we have identified the following priority sectors in our region:

CLEAN ENERGY

Advances in renewable energy can reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and foreign sources of energy. These include; Wind, Solar, Nuclear, Biomass, Wave & Tidal energy.

BUILT ENVIRONMENT

The term ‘built environment’ refers to the human-made surroundings that provide the setting for human activity. For cleantech, this sector poses both challenges and opportunities.

ADVANCED MATERIALS

Advanced materials refer to all new materials and modifications to existing materials to obtain superior performance in one or more characteristics.

LOW CARBON VEHICLES

Reducing transport emissions is an increasingly critical sector of development. Our sustainable shift to low carbon vehicles will reduce our reliance and emission of fossil fuels.

ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY

Environmental technology (envirotech) is the application of one or more of environmental science, green chemistry, environmental monitoring and electronic devices to monitor, model and conserve the natural environment and resources.
