International Energy Demonstration Fund (IEDF)


The International Energy Demonstration Fund (IEDF) is a discretionary, non-entitlement funding program being administered by the Ontario Ministry of Energy on a pilot basis. The program focusses on demonstrations of innovative energy technologies in collaboration with domestic and international partners, to test these technologies in new operational environments.

Applicants must enroll in the One-Key (Transfer Payment Common Registry) to establish a Transfer Payment Account. Once notified, the applicant must then access Grants Ontario to enter the IEDF application system.

Applications to the International Energy Demonstration Fund must be submitted electronically through the Grants Ontario System (GOS).

Step 1: Create a ‘ONe-key’ account and register your organization as a potential Transfer Payment recipient on the Transfer Payment Common Registration system. For instructions, refer to the user guides at http://www.grants.gov.on.ca/GrantsPortal/en/TransferPaymentCommonRegistration/HowtoRegister/index.htm.

Step 2: Request access to Grants Ontario. Refer to How to Access Grants Ontario from the Transfer Payment Common Registration System at http://www.grants.gov.on.ca/GrantsPortal/en/OntarioGrants/HowtoApply/index.htm.
