The $131-million Industrial Energy Efficiency and Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (IEE CCUS) Grant Program is part of Alberta’s $750-million investment from the  Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction (TIER) fund to cut emissions, create jobs and contribute to Alberta’s economic recovery.

The IEE CCUS program is helping Alberta’s large industrial emitters:

  • reduce emissions
  • increase competitiveness
  • lower carbon compliance costs
  • improve energy efficiency through technology and equipment upgrades


Successful IEE CCUS program projects were chosen through a competitive evaluation process. Proposals were reviewed based on emissions reductions and benefits to industry competitiveness, job creation and economic resilience.

Seven successful projects funded by $100 million from the IEE CCUS program were announced publicly in November 2021. These projects include:

  • Advantage Energy: Glacier Gas Plant Carbon Capture and Storage and Waste Heat Recovery in Hythe
  • Ember Resources: Ember Engine Emissions Reduction Program at multiple facilities throughout east/central Alberta
  • Imperial Oil: Kearl ConDex Full Scale Oil Sands Mine Installations in Fort McMurray
  • NuVista Energy: Wembley Cogeneration and Waste Heat Recovery Project in Wembley
  • Strathcona Resources: Lindbergh T70 Cogeneration Expansion in Elk Point
  • TC Energy: Turney Valley Generating Station in Turner Valley
  • Tidewater Midstream: BRC Integrated Steam Methane Reforming (SMR)-CCS-Cogeneration Project in Cynthia

The remaining $31 million in IEE CCUS program funding will be allocated to support more projects in late 2021.
