Humber, Siemens partner on SMART Lab


Humber College has partnered with Siemens Canada to create a Sustainable Microgrid and Renewable Technology Lab (SMART Lab). Humber explains that microgrids provide a decentralized energy source using energy sources such as wind or solar photovoltaics, which dan be connected to the grid or disconnected during threats or natural disasters. Students and professionals alike will be able to conduct research in the SMART Lab and learn about microgrid system use. It will allow Humber a place to offer microgrid and renewable energy micro-credentials, develop new curriculum, and achieve its sustainability goals while also helping to fill skills gaps.
