Canada is building a clean energy future that creates jobs, reduces costs for families and ensures that we remain a destination of choice for international investment. Central to this goal is the growing global battery market that has the potential to change the way we use and store power, providing a major economic opportunity for Canada while directly supporting efforts to mitigate climate change.
The Charging the Future Challenge will help accelerate the most promising Canadian battery innovations from lab to market. During the 18-month challenge, five -finalists will pitch their concepts to a jury of experts to win up to $700,000 each to develop their battery prototype. Ultimately, the most promising battery breakthrough will be awarded a $1-million grand prize.
