New partnership will deliver Canadian energy innovation to the Chinese market
The Advanced Energy Centre (AEC) at MaRS Discovery District and BSD-TEDA – a joint venture between the Beijing Science Park Development (BSD) and the Tianjin Economic Development Area (TEDA) – are pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding to strengthen their working relationship and to jointly explore potential deployment opportunities for Canada’s advanced energy technologies.
The Memorandum of Understanding was formalized at a signing ceremony in Tianjin attended Mr. Guy Saint-Jacques, the Canadian Ambassador to China, and senior representatives of all parties. In particular, the agreement seeks to identify Canadian technologies for deployment in Tianjin’s new Sino-Canadian Low-Carbon Eco-District, a unique Canadian-Chinese collaboration supported by both the Chinese and the Canadian federal governments.
“The introduction of advanced energy innovation in the Eco-City development will demonstrate the potential of these technologies and provide a platform to expose them directly to the Chinese market” said Ron Dizy, Managing Director of the Advanced Energy Centre.
BSD-TEDA is a joint venture between the Beijing Science Park Development Group and Tianjin TEDA Investment Holdings created to promote the construction, development, investment and operation of the Sino-Canadian Low-Carbon Eco-District, a Canadian-Chinese cooperation project supported by the Chinese Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development and Natural Resources Canada.
