Natural Resources Minister Gary Lunn and Minister of Environment John Baird have announced the Canadian Government's ecoEnergy Technology Initiative, which is a $230 million investment in the research, development and demonstration of clean energy technologies.

"As part of our environmental agenda, Canada's new government is introducing this important initiative to protect Canadians' top priority - the environment - while building a competitive and sustainable economy," says Baird.
