February 15, 2023 – Government of PEI: Work has begun on the future home of clean tech innovation and education in Prince Edward Island.
The Georgetown Clean Tech Park will be a 60-acre tax-free zone for clean tech companies. The park will be a destination that attracts companies, entrepreneurs and talent, all focused on advances in clean technology growth. It will also bring together people in key provincial priority areas including education, the economy and the environment, and will help create a new sector for growth on PEI.
The first building in the park will be the Clean Tech Learning and Innovation Centre, which will be home to the Clean Tech Academy. The Academy will offer programs in Clean Tech leadership, through a joint initiative with Holland College and the University of Prince Edward Island.
“If we are to make lasting changes in the sustainability of our province, we must connect education, industry and community, so that bright young minds can build on community know-how to develop the innovations that will power our future,” says Premier Dennis King.
