The University of Calgary’s research into a low-carbon future is getting $75-million dollars in federal funding. The seven-year funding is earmarked for the U of C’s into reducing the impact of energy extraction and energy use on the environment.
U of C president Elizabeth Cannon says the funding will help guide Canada into a new age of sustainable energy and prosperity. Cannon says the university is working with SAIT and other partners across Canada and around the world to develop new ways to transition to a safer, cleaner and more secure energy future.
The money is part of 900-million dollars in funding from the Trudeau government going to 13 different research programs across the country.
