Develop and deploy clean technologies

Innovation and clean technology (cleantech) are critical opportunities available to organizations across the economy. Case in point: cleantech is one of the fastest growing sectors around the world.

Delphi understands how to contextualize the opportunity, no matter what type of organization you represent. For more than a decade, Delphi has worked with clients – including not-for-profits and start-up ventures to government agencies and large-scale industrial clients – to enhance innovation processes, drive efficiency and deliver better environmental outcomes.

Innovation and Cleantech Services

Whether you operate in the private or public sector, Delphi has a suite of Innovation and Cleantech service offerings that can be tailored to meet your development needs.

Our Services Include:

  • Strategic planning to help you make informed decisions about cleantech opportunities in your sector and support the next phase of your work
  • Technical evaluations to determine the environmental and economic viability of specific technologies or technology types
  • Innovation challenge project facilitation, using a leading ecosystem approach to (1) define, socialize, and facilitate dialogues for technology and innovation challenges, (2) source relevant and targeted cleantech solutions, (3) advance these solutions using a customized sprint and support programming, and (4) accelerate cleantech deployment and commercialization
  • Convening, coordinating and facilitating business-to-business (B2B) matchmaking and other transactional programming that improves the success rate of cleantech commercialization and adoption
  • Funding application support for technology adopters and developers, by providing in-depth analysis on market demand trends, technology performance, and potential technological impacts/benefits

Supporting and deploying solutions that improve environmental performance directly contributes to our mission. Our different service offerings contribute to various stages in the solution development and deployment process (e.g., idea generation, opportunity identification, connector between parties, evaluation of technology, etc.).

Case Studies

B.C. Precision Agriculture Clean Technology Scoping Study

Delphi, in partnership with Bioenterprise Corporation, conducted an agriculture clean technology scoping study for the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture.

ARCTIC Challenge Program

Delphi has worked with Foresight since 2013 to manage the ongoing challenge definition process for Foresight’s ARCTIC Challenge program.

Cleantech in the Oil and Gas Sector – Regional Study

Delphi worked with CED throughout 2017 to complete a regional market opportunity study.

Their Kind Words

Delphi consistently generates superior quality products, including an impressive ability to distill insights from complex issues, as well as excellent skills in project and budget management, facilitation, and research-driven reporting. In every engagement with Delphi, they provided greater value than expected.

Scott Stanners, Executive Director, BC Bioenergy Network

Delphi delivered a clean technology scoping study in the area of precision agriculture for British Columbia, a complex task that was the first of its kind for the Province of BC. Considering the condensed four-month timeline for this project, we were very impressed with Delphi’s ability to engage a significant number of industry experts on the subject and to produce a comprehensive, informative report on precision agriculture technology opportunities for BC.

In particular, Project Managers Paul Shorthouse and Erin Williamson were effective in terms of the logistics and planning for the project, their ease and style of engagement, and in terms of delivering on the requests from the Ministry of Agriculture in an efficient and timely manner. We were very pleased with the final report produced by the Delphi team, with the outcomes exceeding our overall expectations.

Chelsea Sutherland, B.C. Ministry of Agriculture

Delphi just gets it done. They are helping us accelerate innovation and cleantech in the resource sector by helping us implement our ARCTIC Challenge program. Delphi knows exactly how to drive important discussions within the innovation ecosystem, facilitate the process, and scope out the challenges, which has led to more and better solutions.

Their ability to connect and build trust has helped us take the ARCTIC program to another level.
