Smaller, superpowered and sustainable: battery research is charging ahead
At UBC’s Okanagan campus, Dr. Jian Liu and his research team are developing the batteries of the future.
Creating solutions for the future of our planet is embedded in every aspect of UBC life—from research and teaching, to campus operations and community outreach.
In Canada, UBC is top-ranked in geography, earth and marine sciences, agriculture, forestry and fisheries, with recognized strength in biodiversity and building sustainable infrastructure. Among global universities, we place in the top three for climate action and in the top five for advancing safe and sustainable cities.
Our Vancouver campus is itself a municipality which acts as an extended ‘living lab’ for the real-time design and testing of sustainable solutions. Our Okanagan campus is a thought incubator, with the vigor of youth and the determination to create a meaningful and immediate impact on the world around us. Our global leadership means we are uniquely positioned to imagine what is possible.
With your help, we will expand our “green innovation” efforts to respond to the climate emergency and deliver new solutions for the future.
All across UBC’s campuses, our faculty, students and staff are working to advance healthy lives, create solutions for the planet and shape thriving societies.
