Announcing $5.3 Million in Funding for Metamaterial Technologies Clean-Tech!

Good news for Dartmouth-Cole Harbour!

Today I announced more than $5.3 million dollars for Metamaterial Technologies- a clean technology company located here in Dartmouth.

Metamaterial has developed a technology that collects, traps and absorbs sunlight from all directions. That means the technology doesn’t need to track the sun’s every move and that leads to a highly efficient way of capturing and using solar energy! This innovative technology will first be tested on unmanned aerial vehicles. Long-term, the technology will be used on aircraft and consumer vehicles on our streets.

This clean-tech funding is administered through Sustainable Development Technology Canada.
