The University of British Columbia's (UBC) Bioenergy Research and Demonstration Facility (BRDF) has been honoured with an Infrastructure 100 Award from KPMG International. This award identifies outstanding efforts in urban infrastructure in cities around the world.
The University of British Columbia today forged a formal partnership with Germany’s Fraunhofer, Europe’s largest research institution for applied research, to focus on renewable-energy technologies.
UBC's campuses are exceptional places to explore, test, and demonstrate sustainability solutions. With many initiatives already in place--and the support to do more coming from all levels at the university--our campuses are becoming “living laboratories,” places where students, faculty, staff and community work together to discover, learn and take action to guide UBC, and the wider world, toward sustainability.
