Welcome to the ESTP Lab
The Energy Systems and Transport Phenomena lab is part of the Institute for Integrated Energy Systems (IESVic) at the University of Victoria. Our work focuses on energy conversion technologies and energy systems analysis. We specifically explore: fundamental transport phenomena (fluid flow, heat and mass transfer, charged species transport and electrochemistry) relevant to emerging energy technologies, fuel cells and hydrogen systems; demand response strategies in electricity grids to facilitate large scale integration of renewable energy and electric vehicles; and long term impacts of climate change on energy and water systems.We investigate fundamental transport phenomena (fluid flow, heat and mass transfer, charged species transport and electrochemisty) relevant to emerging energy technologies, fuel cells and hydrogen systems.
We explore novel technologies to promote the large-scale integration of renewable energy. The current themes of research under investigation are:
- Fuel cells
- Transport in porous media
- Hydrogen dispersion and safety
- Wind energy integration
