Masdar City team seeks out cleantech gems in Canada

My Clean Break column this week is about the $22-billion Masdar City project in oil-rich Abu Dhabi and the recent visit by a delegation of project officials to Toronto, where they met with a number of cleantech companies from around Canada. The folks overseeing development of Masdar City have been on the hunt for technologies that can help them achieve their goals of zero emissions, zero waste, zero cars, and of course those companies that can play a role will have one of the best showcases in the world. Ironic, however, that the money used to fund this ambitious clean-energy project will come from dirty-energy revenues. But hey, smoke’em if you got’em.
