PEI Landfill Gas Project Wins Low-Carbon Energy Funding (Funding)
Enwave Energy Corporation
Date: 2019-03-25
Toronto-headquartered Enwave Energy Corporation reports it is inline to receive as much as $3.5 million in funding through the Government of Canada's Low Carbon Energy Fund to upgrade and expand an existing waste-to-energy system that will divert an additional 23,000 tonnes of organic waste from the Charlottetown District Energy System regional landfill in Prince Edward Island. The project will reduce landfill methane emissions, increase annual energy production, and reduce PEI's fuel oil consumption.

According to Clean Energy Canada, the energy-efficiency measures in Canada's climate plan will help improve Canada's economy and environment between now and 2030 by creating 118,000 new jobs, boosting the nation's GDP by $356 billion, and save Canadian households an average of $114 a year.

The Low Carbon Economy Fund Challenge provides over $500 million in funding to support projects that will leverage ingenuity across the country to reduce emissions and generate clean growth.
