By 2030, we should be living in a low-carbon energy world. This is the goal outlined in the Equinox Blueprint, which provides feasible and flexible options from top researchers in sustainable energy, who met in Waterloo for the Equinox Energy 2030 summit. Their Blueprint recommends better energy storage technologies, enhanced geothermal, advanced nuclear reactors, off-grid electrification and a focus on smart urbanization.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
