Program Of Energy Research And Development

The Board participates on a number of advisory committees for the Program of Energy Research and Development (PERD). This is a federal, interdepartmental program operated by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) that funds research and development designed to ensure a sustainable energy future for Canada in the best interests of both our economy and our environment. It directly supports energy R&D conducted in Canada by the federal and provincial governments, and is concerned with all aspects of energy supply and use.
