Sustainable Energy Policy Group

Sustainable Energy Policy 

Brings together a number of researchers in the University of Waterloo's Faculty of Environment. More specifically, our members are investigating a range of policy, management and behavioural issues related to advanced energy efficiency, conservation, demand management and increased use of renewable energy in our energy systems. We have numerous links with international, national and local partners (including intergovernmental agencies, governments, utilities, businesses, civil society and other researchers). We have funding from a range of agencies, including national funding bodies (NSERC, SSHRC), provincial associations and the private sector. Our research aims to explain current situations, to explore technology-society interactions and to advance future opportunities for sustainability.
