About Sustainable Energy Policy

Sustainable Energy Policy brings together a number of researchers in the University of Waterloo's Faculty of Environment. We invite you to explore this site to find out more about the activities in which our faculty members, graduate students and other researchers are involved as we work to contribute towards a sustainable energy future.

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 (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (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.

We hope that you enjoy exploring this site, and we encourage you to get in touch on issues of common interest!
