Recently, five UBC scientists – Prof. Emeritus KD Srivastava, Prof. José Martí, Adjunct Prof. Ebrahim Vaahedi, research engineer, Paul Lusina, and master’s student, Shahzad Rostamira— sat down to discuss energy systems, Smart Grid and UBC’s role in developing technologies that address both the social and the technological challenges of power. The discussion ranged from small-scale, local projects to international programs, but the integration of systems was a common theme throughout the conversation.
The event that sparked this discussion was Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department launching their signature project, a smart, thermo-electric grid.
