June 16, 2023 – Government of PEI: Sandra Moore will head up the province’s Clean Tech Innovation Centre, which will be based in the new Clean Tech Park in Georgetown. The Clean Tech Innovation Centre will be PEI’s future home for clean technology innovation, business, and energy. It will also house the province’s Clean Tech Academy.
“The Cleantech Innovation Center is a big part of reaching our net zero goals by bringing students, industry and communities together to scale up clean technology solutions,” says Environment, Energy and Climate Action Steven Myers. “Sandra will also be working with our partners to develop and execute a vision and strategy for clean tech education in our province.”
The Georgetown Clean Tech Park, currently under construction, 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 Innovation Centre, home to the Clean Tech Academy. Together, the Academy and the Innovation Centre will accommodate a range of education and enterprises in eco-centered research, development, and manufacturing.
