Researchers at the University of Victoria have received $2.4M to pursue clean energy projects that are making a difference at a local, national, and international level. As well as supporting a variety of solutions-focused research, the UVic release states that the funds will be used to establish the Pacific Regional Institute for Marine Energy Discovery. “As we tackle the many challenges posed by climate change, our researchers are leading the way in sustainable energy research, working closely with governments, industry and community groups to foster clean growth and low-carbon economic development,” says UVic President Jamie Cassels. The funds were provided by the federal government and the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation in conjunction with Seaspan.
