Energy supply and the environment are arguably the two major issues of the 21st century. These topics are intimately inter-related. The UBC Clean Energy Centre is dedicated to developing knowledge and solutions which can be helpful in reducing the environmental impact of the use of energy and ensuring sustainability of energy supply and use. Multi-disciplinary inputs are required for solutions.
