Clean Energy Research Centre
The Clean Energy Research Centre (CERC) is a multi-disciplinary research centre in the Faculty of Applied Science at UBC that promotes and explores sustainable energy technologies. The research in CERC focuses on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to alleviate global climate change, and also on increasing efficiency and decreasing harmful emissions of conventional energy conversion processes and technologies. There are currently 20 faculty members in CERC, mainly from mechanical engineering, chemical and biological engineering, and metals and materials engineering, and nearly 100 graduate students. The centre provides state-of-the-art research facilities to participating faculty and researchers, including some equipment and facilities that are unique in Canada.
Dr. Robert L. Evans is Methanex Professor of Clean Energy Research and Director of the UBC Clean Energy Research Centre, and is also a member of the Mechanical Engineering faculty. One of his recent publications, "Fueling our Future: An Introduction to Sustainable Energy", gives an overview of the usage and impacts of energy use today, and a comprehensive analysis of many sustainable alternatives. It is available from Cambridge University Press.
