Canada invests almost $5M in Energy Modeling Hub led by Polytech MTL, UVic, UCalgary

The Government of Canada has invested almost $5M to establish an Energy Modeling Hub in Quebec, which will be led by Polytechnique Montréal, the University of Victoria, and the University of Calgary. The hub will help Canada develop a decarbonized energy system by creating a national network of experts who can guide the transformation of the country’s energy systems. The four-year project will aim to bridge the gap between data and policy to ensure fully informed responses to energy policy questions. “We need modelling to explore pathways to net zero and show us how to make the best decisions to decarbonize our energy systems,” said UVic Associate Director, Institute for Integrated Energy Systems Madeleine McPherson. “The highly collaborative work at the hub can be a catalyst for large-scale energy transition toward a low-carbon economy.” Canada| UVic Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
