Charting feasible paths to sustainable energy systems

One of the greatest challenges facing humanity today is finding access to safe, clean and sustainable energy. Around the world, researchers, policymakers and investors struggle with sustainable energy questions. What energy sources are available? How can they be used? How might this affect the environment or the economy?

A big picture approach

The Institute for Integrated Energy Systems at the University of Victoria (IESVic) is unique in its big picture approach to sustainable energy research. Collaboration between mechanical engineers, economists and environmental scientists is the norm rather than the exception. Students get hands-on experience, examining entire sustainable energy systems – from harnessing, storing and converting energy sources to delivering end-user services. And when they encounter barriers to sustainable energy's widespread adoption, they develop technologies and expertise to overcome them. This passion and determination has made IESVic a go-to source of expertise for industry leaders.
