SHARC Energy was fortunate to have the support of the Canadian Trade Commissioners through the CTA cleantech program. It helped de-risk and save time in exploring the potential opportunities within the ASEAN market. Through the program, I learned more about our technology and how the messaging may need to be tailored for cooling dominant systems. B2B engagement connected us with eager and interesting businesses within the market and we look to continue to engage for the purpose of creating new business opportunities.
