Canadian universities are behind on teaching about energy storage systems: Opinion

The Globe and Mail reports that several Canadian faculty members feel that Canadian universities have fallen behind on energy storage systems education. University of Waterloo Professor Linda Nazar said that few options exist for students who want to study energy storage, but a “critical mass” of students need to be trained, particularly at the graduate level. Where programs do exist, University of Toronto Professor Ali Hooshyar explained that the curriculum does not always adequately reflect the latest shifts and demands of industry. Dalhousie University Researcher Jeff Dahn shared some of the challenges that institutions face when developing these types of programs, which he says are indicative of the financial challenges universities are facing.
