Clean Energy Research Centre
Providing safe, widespread, and equitable access to sustainable energy is one of the key challenges of our time. The Clean Energy Research Centre (CERC) hosts world-leading researchers who see this challenge as an opportunity to help future generations inherit a better world.
Our interdisciplinary program brings together innovators from many departments, including the Faculty of Applied Science, the Faculty of Science, and the Sauder School of Business.
We also actively seek local and global collaboration with industry, academia and all levels of government.
