Powering a sustainable future
As we attempt to meet energy demands while combatting climate change, rechargeable batteries are one solution. UBC researchers are now tackling the challenges that prevent progress in transitioning to this renewable energy. At UBC’s Okanagan campus, Dr. Jian Liu and his team are designing batteries that will be safer, longer lasting, more efficient, and more affordable. UBC alumni and friends are invited to watch this live webinar to find out how we can create a stable supply chain, ensure energy security, develop a circular economy, and more.
