Welcome to the Waterloo Centre for Electrochemical Energy

The Waterloo Centre for Electrochemical Energy (WCEE) fosters collaborative and interdisciplinary research on electrochemical energy storage and conversion materials and systems.

WCEE collaborates with industry and government agencies to develop cleaner, more efficient and environmentally friendly energy technologies for portable electronics, electric vehicles, fuel cell vehicles, portable and stationary backup power supplies, and smart grid systems. These new energy technologies will protect and clean our air, water and soil while improving the competitiveness of Canadian industry and the standard of living of Canadians. 

As the hub of electrochemical energy storage research development in Canada, WCEE is expected to attract to Ontario industrial battery manufacturers and cleantech companies that rely on new electrochemical technologies.
