Shaw was hosted by Cleantech Commons executive director, Martin Yuill, who provided a briefing and tour of the clean technology Research & Innovation Park.
Yuill outlined the vision for Cleantech Commons, Canada’s first pure-play cleantech innovation district, saying that the park is focused on creating global Canadian leadership in energy, environmental & climate technologies.
“Cleantech Commons,” Yuill said, “lies at the heart of our community’s efforts to support clean and green technology research, innovation and entrepreneurship“.
Offering a unique and picturesque location, Cleantech Commons is designed to be a point of convergence for academic and industry partners driving innovation in clean, green & low-carbon technologies.
Shaw was full of praise for the Park, describing it as “a really exciting project, with a lot of potential for both our community and the world”.
Cleantech Commons is an 85-acre Research & Technology Park currently under development adjacent to the main Peterborough, Ontario campus of Trent University. The initiative is a partnership between the university and the City of Peterborough.
“The vision for Cleantech Commons,” Yuill told Shaw, “is to be Canada’s premier destination for clean, green, low-carbon and environmental technology research, innovation, entrepreneurship and commercialization”.
Shaw says she “left excited for the future of this project, and for all of the innovative solutions being developed to work towards a sustainable future”.
