The Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles has received $10.7M from the Government of Québec to expand its Centre Collégial de Transfert de Technologie (CCTT) Nergica. These funds will be used to construct a new pavilion dedicated to applied research projects in renewable energies. The building will include research facilities, workshops, collaborative spaces, and offices. It will also produce more electricity than it consumes, thanks to the addition of solar panels and other strategic design choices. Nergica will also invest $1.2M in the project, which is expected to be completed by August 2025. Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles directrice générale Yolaine Arseneau said that this project will vitally support the ecological transition of the region.
