Collaboration to develop and integrate affordable clean energy conversion processes and devices as alternatives to fossil fuels.

June 4, 2021

The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and the University of British Columbia (UBC) are pleased to announce their new Collaboration Centre for Clean Energy Transition.

Researchers from the NRC’s Energy, Mining and Environment Research Centre, and key faculty members and students from the UBC Applied Science and Science faculties will work together to develop innovations in hydrogen and carbon technologies across the value chain of clean energy development. This includes materials, systems, technologies and industrial applications.

The collaboration will lead to discoveries and advances in the transition to clean technologies, including publications, patents, and the commercialization of technology to enable affordable, clean alternatives to fossil fuels. Training opportunities for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows will also be provided through this collaboration.
