  • To put the clean technology industry in the context of another R&D intense sector in Canada, in1990, twenty years after the foundation of MacDonald Dettwiler, the Canadian aerospaceindustry achieved the $10 billion threshold. Twenty years later, in 2010, the aerospace industrywas a $22 billion industry.1 Today, there are approximately 400 aerospace and defence SMEsoperating across Canada.In the Canadian clean technology industry, there are an estimated 465 SMEs across Canada.Three hundred of these 465 SMEs have already commercialized their products and services.Direct employment by clean technology SMEs is conservatively estimated at 20,000 today.1 The Canadian aerospace and defence sector experienced a four percent compounded annual growth rate over the20 years between 1990 and 2010. Over its first twenty years it attained the $10 billion annual revenues threshold.The Canadian clean technology industry is a $2 billion industry today that is made up ofcompanies that are on average 15 years old. The period 2007 to 2009 proved that cleantechnology companies can be engines of growth for the economy regardless of economic times.The industry grew at a compound annual growth rate of 47 percent during each of 2008 and2009. Planned compound annual growth rate for 2010 to 2012 is 117 percent. Given projectedgrowth rates, by its twentieth year milestone, the Canadian clean technology industry, much likethe Canadian aerospace and defence industry, is on a trajectory to reach $10 billion by 2015.
  • SMEs establish the beachhead for Canada’s future globally competitiveR&D based industries.Here is proof. In 2009, total BERD by Canadian clean energy SMEs was $512 million. For thesame period, total BERD by Canadian clean energy large companies was $1.02 billion.However, when the Cleaner Fossil Fuels sector is excluded, total BERD investments by SMEs inthe three high growth clean energy sub-sectors of Energy Efficiency, Transportation and CleanPower were comparable in absolute terms to those made by large companies: $329 millionversus $344 million. Canadian clean technology SMEs can be relied upon as leading BERDinvestors in new and emerging sectors such as clean energy and clean technology and this,during recessionary times.2 Even in the more mature sector of Fossil Fuels, SMEs invested $183million in BERD, a figure representing 27 per cent of the total BERD investment made by thelargest companies in Canada.
  • Today, sales by Canadian clean technology SMEs to global markets represent 50 percent of theindustry’s $2 billion in revenues. Exports as proportion of revenues are growing and areexpected to reach more than 58 percent of revenues in 2012. Recently reported findings by theGerman export insurance bank Euler Hermes concluded that companies with more than 50percent of revenues derived from exports are most likely to grow and thrive as opposed tocompanies with only a small portion of revenues derived from exports.1 As can be seen on thechart below, Canadian clean technology companies are globally competitive and are drivenexporters. In 2007, (the most recent available figures), 9 percent of Canadian SMEs wereexporters.2 By contrast, in 2009, 81 percent of Canadian clean energy Tech SMEs wereexporters. To put SME exports in context more generally, SMEs represent 30 percent of totalexports in both Canada and the U.S.
  • Canada’s BERD policies for clean energy and clean technology as enablers of trade should beviewed in the context of the strategies being implemented by our largest trading partners.The U.S. has signaled strongly that clean energy technologies are a key part of both its Trade andR&D agendas. The Department of Commerce stated that clean energy technologies would be apriority sector within its recently announced National Export Initiative. The focus on cleanenergy technology trade was highlighted by President Obama during his visit to India when hesaid that every $1 billion in exports to India creates 5,000 jobs at home. President Obama hasstated that his administration aims to create two million jobs through $400 billion in high valueexports such as clean energy technology exports.At the same time, the U.S. clean energy trade agenda is being tightly coupled with its R&Dpriorities. In India, the President announced the Joint Clean Energy Research Centre andspecific collaboration on areas such as solar, advanced biofuels, shale gas and smart grids.4 Inregards to China, the Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu announced the creation of the U.S.-ChinaClean Energy Research Centre to facilitate joint work. The initial research emphasis for the jointU.S.-China research facility will be energy efficient buildings, clean vehicles and clean coalincluding carbon capture and storage.Moreover, the U.S. is investing in a multi-departmental program to promote clean energytechnology exports, with particular emphasis on R&D investment and trade promotion for U.S.clean energy technology SMEs. In this DOE initiative, Canadian clean technology SMEs wereseen as worthy of review because of their export achievements.Elsewhere, dynamic international trading partners have well established clean energy technologyBERD, commercialization and export initiatives. Examples of strategic approaches have beendeployed in Germany (notably through the Renewable Energy Conferences 2004, 2005, 2006),Japan (notably through Kyoto 2002, National Energy Strategy 2006, Cool Earth 50 2007, 2008)and more recently China with its significant investments in and future commitments to thedeployment of clean energy technologies.
  • It is important to note that like Canada’s globally competitive oil and gas services industry,Canada’s clean technology industry is one that has grown out of pragmatic industry-basedintellectual property. Seventy-four percent of Canadian clean technology companies wereestablished to commercialize the founder’s invention while only 13 per cent of companies wereestablished to commercialize technology developed within a Canadian academic institution.
  • The need for domestic adoption is all the more pressing given constraints on investment capitalin Canada. Since 2002, 32 percent is the ratio between average venture capital investments inCanadian ventures versus average venture capital investments in US ventures forcommercialization stage companies. That is, for every dollar invested in a Canadian company,three dollars were invested in a comparable US company. Said another way, the managementteam of a Canadian clean technology company is often one third the size of its closest Americancompetitor, having three as opposed to nine vice presidents.In the case of clean technology venture capital investments, from 2003 to 2004, there was a gapbetween average Canadian and US investments, but the size of gap widened significantly from2006 onwards and stood at $7.6 million average investment in a Canadian clean technologycompany versus $35 million average investment in US clean technology company in 2008.
  • - Canada has the third largest oil reserves in the world. 97% of these reserves are in the oil sands.Oil sands are a natural mixture of sand, water, clay and bitumenBitumen is oil that is too heavy or thick to flow or be pumped without being diluted or heated. Some bitumen is found within 200 feet from the surface but the majority is deeper underground. At 10 degrees C bitumen is as hard as a hockey puck.Canada’s oil sands are found in three deposits – the Athabasca, Peace River and Cold Lake deposits in Alberta and Saskatchewan. The oil sands are at the surface near Fort McMurray but deeper underground in other areas.
  • When reserves are close enough to the surface they are mined using large shovels and trucks. The shovels dig into the sand and load it into trucks. The trucks take the oil sands to crushers where is is prepared for extraction.Stage 1: Steam injected into the reservoirStage 2: Steam and groundwater heat the viscous oilStage 3: Heated oil and water are pumped to the surface
