From a recent blog post by Ian Philp, featured on the MaRS Discovery District site:
"Premier Wynne’s trade mission to China last week was a special privilege for all involved. The mission was a great success, significantly building and strengthening partnerships and relationships between Canada and China.
One achievement was the memorandum of understanding (MOU) between MaRS’ Advanced Energy Centre (AEC), WaterTAP, and the China Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection Group (CECEP). CECEP is the Chinese state-owned enterprise tasked with energy savings and environmental protection. With 10 subsidiaries and considerable reach into multiple business areas, CECEP is the largest player in the energy and environment sector in China.
The AEC and WaterTAP’s new partnership with CECEP is a Canadian first. China is currently scouring the world for innovative technologies that can generate low-carbon electricity, better integrate renewables into their power grid, and purify air and water. The MOU is the foundation of a relationship that will directly connect our best energy and water technologies and companies with one of the largest energy enterprises in China."
