Investing in Sustainability- Simon Fraser University expansion in Surrey

The federal and B.C. governments are helping fund a $126 million Simon Fraser University expansion in Surrey that aims to put the institution’s scientists — and the city itself — on the global map.

The future five-storey, 15,000-square-metre facility will be used for the proposed Energy Systems and Environmental Engineering Program which will focus on degree programs and research into clean technology and sustainable energy. Among the research areas will be energy issues related to the use of hydrogen, electricity and liquefied natural gas.
