Energy Research Centre

ERC Atrium

The Energy Research Centre (ERC) is a four-storey, 9,290 square-metre building with unique capabilities and facilities in geothermal, hydraulic, hydrogen, natural gas, nuclear, solar and wind energy technologies. The ERC officially opened in November 2011 as a result of a joint $45.4-million investment from the federal and provincial governments through the Knowledge Infrastructure Program (KIP).

The KIP has enabled leading-edge research in clean energies and technologies to flourish within the ERC. The building also features a lecture theatre, tutorials rooms, dedicated study space for students, and research labs for computational simulations in various engineering disciplines, including facilities for electrical power systems and Smart Grid research.
