Other Things to Note:

1. ERA uses a Call for Proposals process that is divided into two stages, the Expression of Interest (EOI) stage and the Full Project Proposal (FPP) stage.
2. Partnership Intake Program - In 2018, ERA approved the first set of projects under the Partnership Intake Program. The process has been highly effective for accelerating innovation, maximizing impact through leverage of partner funds, and reducing the administrative burden for project proponents. The referral-based program allows ERA to consider funding promising technologies outside its traditional call for proposal process, allowing for ongoing opportunities to fund innovative GHG-reducing projects brought forward by Trusted Partners.
