The Methane Emissions Reduction Network (MERN) is a hybrid virtual / hands-on entrepreneurial hub whose mission is to launch bold and innovative applied research and technology development projects supporting Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan.

This Network is working on launching market-driven R&D projects to reduce methane emissions and provide uniform, neutral and complete communications to all stakeholders operating within the methane space. MERN’s overall vision aims to:
• Create an innovation ecosystem where all stakeholders can freely access information related to methane initiatives.
• Align industry priorities and connect innovators within the ecosystem to resources.
• Identify gaps and launch methane projects accordingly.
• Design a platform for accelerating the commercialization of relevant, critical, and cost-effective technologies to reduce methane emissions.
