Full applications are submitted through AccessOCE, OCE’s online application system. The full application requires a detailed implementation plan and a third party assessment of GHG emission reductions and environmental co-benefits, information regarding the technology, value proposition, team and the use of funds.
Third party assessment of GHG emission reductions includes the validation of project-level GHG emission quantification including baseline development. This third party assessment MUST be carried out by an accredited verification body; i.e. a verification body that is accredited to ISO 14065 by a member of the International Accreditation Forum. The industrial emitter is required to support this cost.
An External Review Panel (ERP), comprised of sector experts, will review the full application. External reviewers will complete Non-Disclosure Agreements prior to the review of the applications. Applicants will present and respond to questions at the ERP meeting. ERP makes funding recommendations to OCE based on its assessment of the application and presentation.
The final funding decision rests with OCE through its Internal Review Panel (IRP) which is comprised of senior OCE staff.
Successful Applicants will be notified by OCE and provided an outline of conditions and additional information necessary to activate the project.
Applicants who are not selected for receipt of funding will receive email notification outlining the outcome. An opportunity for Applicants to discuss the decision with their OCE Business Development Manager will be offered.
