Future Energy Systems Website Launched

Today, the new Future Energy Systems (FES) website was launched. FES was first established on September 7, 2016, when the University of Alberta was awarded $75 million over seven years for energy research through the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF). FES currently consists of 12 theme areas; each theme is coordinated by a team of three co-champions:

  • Bioenergy
  • Carbon capture, utilization, and storage
  • Communities and Aboriginal
  • Energy humanities
  • Geothermal energy
  • Grids and storage
  • Heavy oil
  • Land and water
  • Non-electrical infrastructure
  • Solar energy
  • Wind energy
  • Systemwide analysis

I am co-champion of the Communities and Aboriginal theme and a principal investigator within the Geothermal Energy theme. A summary of Future Energy Systems is below:
