PIMS Workshop on Mathematical Sciences and Clean Energy Applications

21st May 2019   -   24th May 2019
University of British Columbia Vancouver, British, Canada


To minimize climate impacts and prevent runaway climate change, the energy chain of the global economy must be drastically decarbonized. This exploratory workshop will build a greater dialogue between those in the mathematical sciences and the clean energy sector. The workshop will include: first-hand accounts of mathematical scientists working in clean energy projects, kind and gentle introductions to clean energy systems and mathematical tools, graduate student presentations, and panel discussions on topics such as challenges in clean energy. The goal of the workshop is to inspire interest in further exploration and to nucleate collaborations between mathematical scientists and practitioners in clean energy. Mathematical scientists with no previous experience in clean energy research are welcome.
