We are pleased to announce that the deadline to apply to the Green Heat Test Drive Call for Proposals (CFP) has been extended by three weeks. The deadline for application is now Tuesday, September 28, 2021

See the full Call for Proposals that was issued July 27, 2021, and explore how you can support environmental progress and contribute to this key energy initiative.

In extending the deadline, the Department of National Defence (DND) is maximizing its chances of getting the best technology to solve the challenge of finding ways to convert its buildings to low carbon heating without requiring a major building retrofit, and address greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

About the challenge:

The Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces (DND/CAF) are looking to Test Drive creative energy generation solutions to pair up with existing heating systems to help lower our carbon footprint. Specifically, DND/CAF are seeking a large-scale, low carbon energy generation/transfer system for heating existing buildings by integrating with their current hydronic heat distribution systems. A test building has been selected in Kingston, Ontario, for a Design-Build team to design and install an innovative system, in order to assess the effectiveness and the costs of these integrated technologies, with the aim of reducing the energy demand and carbon footprint of DND/CAF’s infrastructure portfolio. The potential funding for the Design-Build contract component of the project has been established in the range of $5,500,000.
