CRIN Innovation Central

As an amplifier and a connector, CRIN helps cleantech solutions from the oil and gas industry move through Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs) so they can be commercialized and broadly adopted faster. Ensuring these solutions are visible to the network is a key step in completing this process.

Innovation Central provides a platform where innovators can showcase their emerging technologies. By providing visibility, new partnerships and collaborations, funding and investment, and vital knowledge-sharing can take place.

Producers, investors/funders, solution developers, governments, researchers, accelerators and many others, can use this list to find the people and resources they need to bring innovations to commercialization and wide-spread adoption.

Together we will help Canada achieve its climate targets and our vision of Canada as the global leader in clean hydrocarbons from source to end use.

To review current project solutions, please see the table below. For your convenience, you can search the list by industry priority focus areas and TRLs.
