SFU to launch Low Carbon Cities Canada Innovation Centre

January 14, 2021
Simon Fraser University’s Renewable Cities program will be establishing a regional Low Carbon Cities Canada Innovation Centre with the support of a $21.7M investment from the federal government. The centre will help improve the economy and public health by reducing carbon emissions in Vancouver. The release says that the centre will use the funding to “identify, finance and launch ideas ranging from expanding electric transportation fleets to retrofitting buildings.” It will provide a place to develop and test solutions to reduce building and transportation carbon emissions that can then be used across the region.
