Large scale solar, natural gas storage and power generation, hydrogen production, biofuels, and other emerging energy technologies are located in Sarnia-Lambton.

Bioindustrial Innovation Canada operates a commercialization centre for large-scale industrial biotechnology and alternative energy, located at the Western Sarnia-Lambton Research Park.

The  Bluewater Energy Park (owned and operated by TransAlta) and the Bio-Industrial Park Sarnia (owned and operated by LANXESS) both provide unique sites for industries with large electrical and steam requirements, and can offer "behind the fence" pricing for companies locating within either of these parks.

The industry-led Bluewater Sustainability Initiative (BSI) works to realize the vision of Sarnia-Lambton becoming recognized worldwide as a hybrid green community.

Lambton College is committed to Sarnia-Lambton's energy focus, as demonstrated by their  Sustainable Smart House and energy and process technology programs and research.
