Welcome to the Sustainable Energy Initiative

The Faculty of Environmental Studies Sustainable Energy Initiative (SEI) has been established to build and strengthen the teaching, research and partnerships needed to create new green energy economies in Canada and around the world. Focused on energy efficiency and conservation, renewable energy sources and combined heat and power, the Initiative is designed to:

  • Advance sustainable energy solutions through research;

  • Educate and train the new cohort of sustainable energy practitioners needed to respond to the demand created by the Ontario Green Energy Act and similar initiatives in other jurisdictions;

  • Build sustainable energy partnerships among educational institutions, government agencies, business and industry, and non-governmental organizations; and

  • Enhance learning opportunities for professionals working in the sustainable energy industry.
