Summit

Nova Scotia stands on the cusp of the clean technology revolution.

Do you know Nova Scotia has already reduced GHG emissions by 26% from 2005 levels, and is targeting a 53% decrease by 2030? Or that Tesla’s sole satellite battery research facility is located in Halifax, the province’s capital? Or that Nova Scotia has outstanding capacity in research and development within the clean technology industry with its 10 universities and 13 community college campuses?

A VIBRANT CLEAN TECHNOLOGY ECOSYSTEM – Nova Scotia is a recognized leader in carbon capture and sequestration, as well as energy storage research, with a growing battery R&D cluster. The province is also a materials innovator—from high performance composites and coatings to next generation nanomaterials. Home to a growing bioeconomy, Nova Scotia is developing low-carbon and circular solutions for diverse applications. Local companies and researchers are devising unique methods of carbon sequestration, one of the key technologies used to reduce domestic emissions from carbon dioxide and to mitigate climate change risks.

A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO GROWING CLEAN TECHNOLOGY – Nova Scotia Business Inc., business development agency for the Province of Nova Scotia, works to bring together the private, public and research sectors to foster a holistic approach to growing clean technology. Home to a thriving R&D sector with more than 3,000 public and private sector scientists undertaking cutting-edge research, Nova Scotia’s dynamic clean technology industry is making waves and attracting considerable international attention.

CAPTURE AND SEQUESTER: THE FUTURE OF DECARBONIZATION – Nova Scotia is hosting several events throughout the Movin’ On Summit 2021 where clean technology industry leaders will share expertise and encourage discussion around clean energy storage, decarbonization, and future trends. Register today for Nova Scotia’s first event of the conference, “Capture and Sequester: The Future of Decarbonization” to be held June 2nd at 8 am EST. During this event attendees can engage with industry thought leaders about decarbonization.

MAKING WAVES IN CLEAN TECHNOLOGY – Join us at Movin’ On Summit 2021 and explore the cutting-edge technologies happening in Nova Scotia – where individuals and organizations are working together on the path to leadership in sustainable growth.
