Program of Energy Research and Development (PERD)
Environment Canada partners with 12 other departments and agencies to deliver the Program of Energy Research and Development (PERD), a federal program operated by Natural Resources Canada that funds sustainable energy research and development (R&D).
Environment Canada manages PERD funds provided by Natural Resources Canada for projects examining the environmental aspects of energy production and use.
In delivering the Department’s PERD R&D, Environment Canada partners with:
- the private sector (industry, research institutes, companies, consortia and alliances, individuals, associations)
- other funding agencies such as the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP), and Sustainable Development Technology Canada
- provincial and municipal governments and research organizations
- international organizations
The Department also makes an in-kind contribution by managing Environment Canada’s PERD Secretariat, which oversees the program’s finances, coordinates meetings, and publishes results.
