Institute for Integrated Energy Systems

2019 North American INORE Symposium

Organized by IESVic graduate students, the North American International Network on Offshore Renewable Energy (INORE) Symposium included a focus on renewable energy for remote communities and highlighted some of the unique work being done in British Columbia. The event provided graduate, postgraduate and young professionals in the marine renewable energy field an opportunity to share their knowledge and make new connections.

Institute for Integrated Energy Systems

One of the greatest challenges we face is the development of sustainable energy systems that are reliable, cost-effective and socially acceptable. Our mission is to chart feasible pathways to sustainable energy systems through the development of new technologies, processes, and systems.

A big picture approach

The Institute for Integrated Energy Systems at the University of Victoria (IESVic – “ice-vic”) is a multi-disciplinary research centre. Researchers collaborate to ensure their work is shaped with a broad disciplinary lens. Students are taught to consider a system perspective when assessing value – from harnessing, storing and converting energy sources, to efficiently delivering end-user services while considering social factors. When they encounter barriers to the widespread adoption of sustainable energy systems, they develop technologies and expertise to overcome them.
