The Waterloo Institute for Sustainable Energy (WISE) was established at the University of Waterloo in 2008. The Institute comprises more than 95 plus faculty members with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows working as multi disciplinary research teams across Engineering, Science and Environment. The Institute provides a focal point for energy research at Waterloo and creates the best possible research platforms for faculty to test their ideas, engage with their peers, and partner with external organizations to accelerate the pace of research, development and deployment of practical solutions.
Research initiatives developed at WISE are of an interdisciplinary nature - spanning theory and experiment - encompassing a broad range of expertise across several faculties and departments. In a short period of five years, WISE has grown to become Canada's largest concentration of researchers in academia devoted to sustainable energy. The Institute has created positive relationships with senior energy leaders from all sectors and has generated significant opportunities for its members to advance energy research. WISE continues to intensify communication and outreach programs to share the knowledge created and to cultivate energy literacy. WISE - and the University of Waterloo - are becoming internationally recognized as leaders in addressing the global energy challenge.
