Cleantech Commons Selected As Future Research Home Of Electric Vehicle Company Trouvé Victory Inc.

PETERBOROUGH-Cleantech Commons in Peterborough and Trouvé Victory Inc. have announced that the emerging Canadian electric vehicle company is finalizing tenancy for its research, new product development, and pilot-scale operations at Cleantech Commons.

Trouvé Victory Inc. is a Canadian company incorporated in 2019 to manufacture electric vehicles, based on a decade of previous experience in the industry. All vehicle models are planned to use green hydrogen fuel cells.

The announcement was made on March 29, 2023, and follows the recent signing of a memorandum of understanding.

This MOU builds on a collaborative research relationship entered into between Trent and Trouvé in November 2022 designed to leverage the University’s expertise in fields such as chemistry, biomaterials, and materials sciences. The collaboration on clean technology innovations aims to take advantage of the faculty expertise and facilities at Trent to advance green innovations for electric vehicles.

We are excited to welcome Trouvé to the Cleantech Commons community of clean, green and low-carbon innovators and entrepreneurs,” says Martin Yuill, executive director of Cleantech Commons. “We believe that academic and entrepreneurial collaboration is fundamental to driving the discovery of new sustainable solutions and we look forward to the possibilities with Trouvé as they bring their innovative technologies to the market.”

Cleantech Commons research and innovation park is a partnership between Trent University and the City of Peterborough. Officials say its vision is to become a hub for green technology innovation.

“Perhaps our biggest reason for choosing Cleantech Commons is the link with Trent University and its excellent research team, with whom we plan close collaboration,” says Faruk K. Rama, chairman of Trouvé “Our facility will benefit from access to their talented graduates and post-doctoral fellows, plus, who can resist establishing a base in this naturally beautiful location and its proximity to the Greater Toronto Area?”

Officials say Trouvé’s plans for future tenancy at Cleantech Commons include a LEED-certified pilot facility using forward-thinking sustainable architectural practices with an advanced manufacturing pilot production space, a product demonstration zone, research and development laboratories, and a community hub designed to serve multiple stakeholders in the advancement of a net-zero future for the automotive industry.

Trouvé is currently finalizing a round of investment, part of which will finance the construction of its future facilities at Cleantech Commons.
