The Toronto Clean Energy Partnership is a collaborative economic development initiative launched to support the growing clean energy sectors in Toronto and abroad.
The City of Toronto is working in partnership with Global Affairs Canada, the Province of Ontario, Toronto Global, Toronto Finance International and the Ontario Clean Technology Industry Association to develop the Toronto Clean Energy Partnership initiative. The goal of this initiative is to partner with large urban communities in Central and Eastern Europe to help transition them to low carbon heating solutions while creating trade opportunities for Toronto and Eastern European companies in zero carbon heating systems, building energy retrofits, infrastructure construction/modernization and pollution control.
