Associate Vice-President (Research) Walter Dixon speaks at the CCITF funding announcement.

Eleven Future Energy Systems researchers were among the recipients of new funding announced today by the Government of Alberta and Alberta Innovates. The funding, part of the Climate Change Innovation and Technology Framework, supports research that will help meet the province's climate change goals through technical innovations in the energy sector.

Future Energy Systems is a funding partner in four of the projects, and many of the others will have connections to researchers' Future Energy Systems work. In the coming months, this website will profile some of the successful researchers and their projects.

Congratulations to the Future Energy Systems recipients!
