McGill launches research centre for energy storage and conversion

May 27, 2021

McGill University has launched the McGill Centre for Innovation in Storage and Conversion of Energy (McISCE). The research centre will investigate sustainable technological solutions to improve electrical energy storage and conversion, supporting Quebec’s 2030 Plan for a Green Economy. McISCE will bring together a network of expertise from a variety of McGill’s faculties, and plans to pursue partnerships with important energy stakeholders from across QC and Canada. “The time has long [passed] for the wide array of McGill research talent to work in a coordinated and united fashion,” explained Professor Sylvain Coulombe, Co-leader of the McISCE. “The problems we face as a society are too complex for researchers to approach individually. Combining the strength of our network will yield far better results.” McGill (QC)
