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.
