The Technology and Innovation Initiative (funded at $250 million in Budget 2003 ) contributes to the development, demonstration and early adoption of new, cleaner technologies and economic opportunities. The Initiative focuses on five areas critical to achieving climate change goals: hydrogen economy, cleaner fossil fuels, advanced end-use efficiency technology, decentralized energy and biofuels. The Advanced End-Use Efficiency Technology part (funded at $40 million) promotes the development and demonstration of energy-efficient technology that can be used in the industrial, commercial, community and transportation sectors. Examples include advanced industrial process technology, intelligent buildings and community systems management, low-energy lighting systems, low-emissions vehicles and more efficient transportation systems.
