HTML- Evaluation report and Management Response
This report presents the findings of an evaluation conducted on the Clean Energy Science & Technology sub-activity: Clean Energy Systems for Industry Portfolio (CESI sub-activity). The S&T research projects are undertaken in federal laboratories in concert with industry to improve and develop industrial processes and technologies that will reduce industrial energy intensities and lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and criteria air contaminants (CACs). Activities occurring within the CESI sub-activity are managed by the Highly Energy-Efficient Industrial Science and Technology group (HEIST), which is part of the Office of Energy Research and Development (OERD) within Natural Resources Canada (NRCan). The evaluation encompasses the five-year period from fiscal year 2006-07 to 2010-11 and examines CESI's objectives and activities, which are to support research and development (R&D) to develop cross-cutting technologies applicable to several industrial sectors.
