The University of Calgary has officially opened the Energy Transition Centre (ETC) in downtown Calgary. The ETC will be used for the research and development of new clean energy technologies and start-up companies in order to accelerate promising energy technology. Retailers and energy producers, policy makers, and UCalgary community members who are interested in energy will be able to collaborate with one another through the centre. “Bringing together our top researchers and highly qualified industry professionals, this initiative will create new technologies, generate employment opportunities, and provide innovative energy solutions that will benefit all Canadians,” said UCalgary President Dr Ed McCauley.
