What is the Advanced Energy Centre?

The Advanced Energy Centre (AEC) is a public-private partnership founded in 2014, with the MaRS Discovery District, the Ontario Ministry of Energy and Siemens Canada as founding partners. Its partnership network has since grown and diversified to include representatives from across the energy sector, both in Canada and internationally.

Our Mission

The Advanced Energy Centre’s mission is to foster the adoption of innovative energy technologies in Canada, and to leverage those successes and experiences into international markets.

Recognizing the difficulty of adopting innovation in a highly regulated energy sector, the AEC works through its partnership network to enact change.

Using strategic programming to overcome the systemic barriers to market entry, scale-up and export, the AEC is a catalyst for the adoption of advanced energy technologies.
