Partnership for Sustainable Energy Technologies


Fraunhofer and The University of British Columbia UBC in Vancouver, Canada will partner to jointly develop technologies for sustainable energy production and supply.

Mastering this difficult task will require new technologies. Currently the green-energy industries in both Germany and Canada have a globally recognised leadership role. The new alliance between Fraunhofer and the The University of British Columbia UBC will contribute to maintaining and enhancing this role.
