Founded in 2012, the Clean Energy Zone, housed in Ryerson University’s Centre for Urban Energy (CUE), is an incubator focused on clean, sustainable energy innovations including electric vehicles, renewable energy, energy storage and distribution, microgrids and net-zero city building. We bring researchers, students and industry partners together to commercialize sustainable solutions that address societal needs and provide real environmental, social and economic impact.
Benefiting from Ryerson’s unique zone learning model, members of the Clean Energy Zone develop their ideas while learning new skills to improve their business acumen and technical expertise. Through our relationship with CUE, we also offer our zone members access to state-of-the-art research labs, co-working spaces and curated mentorship from industry partners and academic researchers and faculty.
Since forming in November 2012, the Clean Energy Zone has worked with 27 startups.
The Clean Energy Zone is open to anyone with a unique energy-focused innovation or idea. Download our brochure (pdf) for more information.
