McGill receives $2M grant for carbon-free energy storage, conversion research

December 3, 2021
McGill University’s Centre for Innovation in Storage and Conversion of Energy has received a $2M grant from TD Bank Group that will be used to boost research capacity in carbon-free energy solutions, support students and researchers, and facilitate technology transfer. The Centre, which is based in the Faculty of Engineering, brings together a network of 40 professors, each with teams of students, from multiple faculties across the university. The research will contribute to a cleaner, carbon-free future. “We are very grateful to TD for this timely and visionary donation to help find solutions to the climate crisis,” said Jim Nicell, Dean of McGill’s Faculty of Engineering. “In our work to move towards a sustainable economy based on renewable energy, it is imperative that we develop affordable carbon-free energy carriers and energy storage technologies.” McGill (QC)
