VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/20/17 -- Loop Energy is pleased to announce that it has secured $760,000 in funding through the Government of Canada's Western Innovative (WINN) Initiative. The funding arrives one year after the Company was awarded a $7.5M grant from Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) to advance the deployment of Loop's zero-emission range extender system for heavy-duty trucks.
Launched in 2013, WINN is a five-year initiative to provide up to $100 million in repayable contributions to technology companies with operating facilities in western Canada towards late-stage research and development projects. WINN funding requires companies to participate in a multi-stage application and selection process.
"Canadian companies are working hard to bring their innovative products and services to market," said the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for Western Economic Diversification Canada. "The Government of Canada is proud to help Loop Energy improve performance, durability, and cost of hydrogen fuel cells for heavy-duty commercial vehicles. It is organizations like Loop Energy that are promoting economic growth, creating high-quality jobs for Canadians, and furthering Canada's innovation landscape."
"The WINN contribution is another testament to Loop Energy's continued progress in delivering an economically-viable product to the heavy-duty vehicle marketplace," noted Ben Nyland, President and CEO of Loop Energy. "We are extremely grateful for the broad level of support we have received from the Government of Canada which has allowed us to complete the development of our innovative fuel cell technology for heavy-duty transportation applications while also enabling us to achieve the financial and brand recognition milestones required to advance many international partnerships which will benefit both Loop and Canada long into the future."
