4 Page 4 Industry Canada’s Strategic Objectives Trade Increasing Canada’s share of global trade Trade Team Canada Electric Power Equipment and Services Investment Improving Canada’s position as a preferred location for domestic and foreign investment Investment Partnerships Canada Marketplace Building a fair, efficient, and competitive marketplace. Canadian Intellectual Property Office MicroPower Connect (supporting this NRCan initiative)www.micropower-connect.org Connectedness Making Canada the most connected country in the world ebiz.enable Innovation Improving Canada’s innovation performance Innovation Strategy Technology Road Maps Technology Partnerships Canada

5 Page 5 Assisting technology development Technology Partnerships Canada (TPC) is a technology investment fund established to contribute to the achievement of Canada's objectives: increasing economic growth, creating jobs and wealth, and supporting sustainable development. TPC advances and supports government initiatives by investing strategically in research, development and innovation in order to encourage private sector investment, and so maintain and grow the technology base and technological capabilities of Canadian industry. TPC supports research, development and innovation in : Environmental technologies Enabling technologies (advanced manufacturing and processing technologies, advanced materials processes and applications, applications of biotechnology, and applications of selected information technologies) Aerospace and Defence Technology Partnerships Canada

6 Page 6 Focusing technology development Technology Road Maps Planning process driven by projected needs of tomorrows markets Helps companies identify, select and develop technology options Helps companies pool resources and work with academia and government Led by industry, facilitated by government To date 9 completed, 7 underway Guide R&D activities of companies and government

7 Page 7 Technology Road Maps Industry led, multi-stakeholder, collaborative, interactive process A tool to facilitate the setting of S&T priorities and integration of new technology with business Phase I: Identify markets and needs for future business growth (5-15 years) Identify new business opportunities for exploiting technology Provide top level information on the technological direction of the business over future years (5-15 years) Identify gaps in market and technical knowledge, policies, regulations, outreach, etc. Formulate recommendations and Final Roadmap report Innovation Roadmap on Sustainable Fuels and Chemicals from Biomass

8 Page 8 Technology Road Maps Phase II: Plan actions to develop and commercialize critical technologies Identify technology projects that have the best potential for commercialization Phase III: Review and update the Technology Roadmap with new market and technology information Innovation Roadmap on Sustainable Fuels and Chemicals from Biomass

9 Page 9 Fuel Cell Commercialization Road Map  Objective  Create common vision for the full scale commercialization of fuel cells  Bring together industry, government, academic stakeholders across the fuel cells sector value chain in Canada  Tasks  Identify challenges and solutions to full scale commercialization  Describe necessary actions by industry, government and academia to commercialize fuel cells  Develop implementation plan and Roadmap Report  Participants  Representation from across the Canadian fuel cell value chain (45 organizations)  Linked to Major Canadian Government Initiatives  Climate Change Technology and Innovation Program  Innovation Strategy
