Cleantech Commons is Canada’s premier clean technology research and innovation destination.

Our unique cleantech research and innovation park will play host to a cluster of world-class companies and start-up ventures in the fields of clean, green and low-carbon technology; agro-biotechnology; water technology; and biomaterials.

Cleantech Commons is collaborating directly with Trent University, one of Canada’s leading environmental academic institutions. This relationship will provide the Cleantech Commons’ community with access to cutting-edge resources, facilities, academic and corporate connections and research opportunities.

The designated land for Cleantech Commons is being carefully and expertly considered. As businesses and people occupy this new innovation district, development will be landscape-led: integrated into the existing topography, maintaining existing natural features, and creating as little of a human footprint as possible. Green building and transportation principles, together with sustainable and low-impact design, will be key. All tenant operations at Cleantech Commons must be environmentally-friendly.

Cleantech Commons at Trent University is being designed to produce big ideas, powerful relationships, and meaningful results – all to support ventures focused on creating new solutions and leveraging new technology to help solve the world’s energy, environment and climate challenges.
