About the Centre

The Energy Transition Centre (ETC) isn’t just a space, it is a collision of ideas that supports clean energy transition. Along with our partners, this one-of-a-kind initiative nurtures emerging startups and their founders by de-risking and high-grades energy transition technologies in collaboration with industry, academics, students, researchers, end users and the community. 

Our partnership with Avatar Innovation means you’ll get expert support and advice on moving your technology from ideation to a full company. Our collaboration with the University of Calgary means access to world-class energy researchers, highly trained talent and access to a plethora of university professional development and entrepreneurship programs. Through these partnerships we have created a power team to help propel your startup and technology and foster leaders in energy transition.
